Lake Kindyktykul

Lake Kindyktykul (“Kin-dik-tik-kool”) is at the edge of the Chikhachev Ridge system in southeastern Altai and is home to over 20 species of endangered birds. In 2013 The Altai Project embarked on a Wild Altai expedition, visiting Lake Kindyktykul and studying wildlife and the ecosystem around it. We hope to resume our Wild Altai trips in 2016.
