Lake Darsahkol, Russia

Located in the Altai Mountains, Lake Darashkol is a high mountain lake in Russia. The Altai Mountains span central Asia, where Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan come together, and where the rivers Irtysh, Ob and Yenisei have their sources. The region represents the most complete sequence of altitudinal vegetation zones in central Siberia, from steppe, forest-steppe, mixed forest, sub-alpine vegetation to alpine vegetation and is home to the snow leopard and the Altai argali.
