Lake Rahat is located at the foot of the Juku Pass, south of Lake Issyk Kul. At more than 3000 meters above sea level, it is located on an important passage of the Silk Roads. The lake is a glacial lake and the water is always cloudy. The current path passes by the eastern shore of the lake but you will see an old path on the western shore, which was certainly marked by caravaners. 580 meters long, it is surrounded by several snow-capped peaks all year round.
