Lakes

Lakes: Aksuat, Sari-Moen, Katantal, Jarkol


aksuat

A significant area of the reserves' territory, nearly a fourth of its size, or 2,400 ha, is occupied by lakes. Most of these are sizable, saline lakes and are fed mostly by melting snow in the spring. The largest of them are lakes Aksuat and Sari-Moen. They are located in the center of a seasonal migration route. During the migration season these lakes provide rest and shelter to a hundred thousand birds and waterfowl. Another area includes Lake Jarkol with surrounding areas of grass meadows. The reeds surrounding the lakes provide nesting areas for numerous waterfowl and are home to the wild boar!
