Tourist buses go to the lake. We do not recommend driving a private car. The last part of the road leading from Russia is disgusting. In addition, for ordinary travelers, unlike those going by buses, they are checked particularly carefully at the customs and border crossing points. You will also have to pay for car insurance when crossing the Kazakh customs line.

Another variant is to go by train: go to Petropavlovsk, and then change to Moscow-Karaganda train, or Petropavlovsk-Almaty train, or Yekaterinburg-Tashkent train. All trains go through the Borovoe (Shchuchinsk) resort station.
