Lake Kaindy - Kazakhstan's Sunken Forrest

Lake Kaindy is situated near the village of Saty in the Kungey Alatau Mountains (a range in the North Tien-Shan) in the central Asian country of Kazakhstan. There wasn't always a lake there: the trunks of pine trees jutting out of the water provide testimony to that.
So what happened here?
