About Kel-Suu

[:ru] An hour's drive south, oil-rich Abu Dhabi, the UAE capital, is positioning itself as a hub of culture, sport and leisure. Beyond looms the vast Al Gharbia region, which is dominated by the northern reaches of the Rub' Al Khali desert. Its magical silence is interrupted only by the whisper of shifting dunes rolling towards Saudi Arabia. [:en]Kol Suu Lake (or properly called Kol Teckeri) is quickly becoming one of the region’s most popular tourist destinations. Secluded high up in the mountains that skirt along the Chinese border, Lake Kel Suu offers breathtaking views both on the steep climb up to the lake as well as at its shores. The water in the lake Kol Suu is fresh and has a greenish tint. The elevation of this region is so high, snow is possible at any time of the year (even August!) so be prepared for cold, wet, extreme temperature, and weather conditions. Transfer to Kol-Suu is a real adventure that involves crossing two manned military checkpoints with gates to check visas & passports, 6 hours of off-road driving over sketchy bridges and multiple river crossings, then a further 2 hours walking or horse riding.
