Kapshagai (Kazakh: Қапшағай, Russian: Капшага́й) is a city in Almaty Region of Kazakhstan.[1] It is located on the Ili River, and has been built along with the construction of Kapshagay Dam on that river in the 1960s. The dam has formed Kapshagai Reservoir (a.k.a. Lake Kapshagai), a popular weekend destination for beach-goers from Almaty. Population: 39,855 (2009 Census results);[2] 33,428 (1999 Census results).[2]
