The peninsula projecting from the south shore and an island off the north shore divide the lake into two basins: a smaller eastern one, which is relatively shallow, between 13 to 19 meters, and a larger western one, with the depths of 221 to 240 m.

The area of the lake is 380 square km. It lies within a circular depression interpreted as a meteorite impact crater with a rim diameter of 52 km. The impact occurred a little less than 5 million years ago. Karakul in Turkic means ‘black lake’. They gave the lake this name because at certain times its waters turned blackish, as it was said. However, today it is not so. When the sun shines at a certain angle the crystalline water of the lake is either dark blue or dark green.

After a hike along the shore of Lake Karakul, you will spend the night in a guest house.
