Kazakhstan in August
June to September is summer in Kazakhstan, and it is hot and dry with temperatures in Almaty ranging from around 16 -30 °C (60-86). It is a wonderful time to hike around Issyk Lake and Big Almaty Lake or the Tien Shan mountains. July and August are preferred times to visit the Altai mountains if you are planning to spend the night on the higher reaches where it can get a little cooler at night. Though mainly dry the Altai has about 20 days of mild rain over the summer. Another popular choice to take advantage of the warm weather is the Aksu-Zhabagly Nature Reserve located in the far southern reaches of the country in the western Tien Shan mountains. The reserve is home to 44 endangered mammals, such as snow leopards, Himalayan brown bears and Indian crested porcupines.
