Alakol District (Kazakh: Алакөл ауданы, Alakól aýdany) is a district of Almaty Region in Kazakhstan. The administrative center of the district is the town of Usharal.[2] Population: 70,427 (2013 estimate);[1] 69,398 (2009 Census results);[3] 79,773 (1999 Census results).[3]

Geography

The district is located in the Balkhash-Alakol Depression. Parts of its eastern border (where the district borders on East Kazakhstan Region) run through the chain of lakes - Lakes Sasykkol, Koshkarkol, Alakol, and Zhalanashkol. There are no major rivers in the district; the fairly small Tentek River, which flows toward Lake Sasykkol, but reaches it only intermittently, is the largest one.
