The district is located in the Ballkhash-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.
