Lake Dikoye to east of Prokhodnoye gorge.

Walking in gorge in mountains of Zailiyskiy Alatau.

“Here, often with unprecedented melancholy
I thought, dreamed of yo
Mists crept from the passes
Towards an unclear fate.
Guitar busting rang
And listened to them under the window
Oh mountains, oh blue mountains,
Peaks covered with ice"

Yuri Vizbor. "Blue Mountains". 1956.
