5 days in Kyrgyzstan
(Lake Issyk-Kul and Son-Kul)
If you have a short vacation, but want to see most of the country, then we are pleased to offer you this tour of Kyrgyzstan, which captures the northern and central parts of the country. In just 5 days you can see the popular, amazing and unique alpine lake Issyk-Kul, you can swim in its blue waters and bask in the rays of the mountain sun on a sandy beach.
You can also go around it, see small cities that are interesting for their colorfulness, where people live a measured life, plant gardens and raise livestock. You can see historical and cultural attractions, natural beauties: waterfalls, mountain lakes, gorges and rocks.
Then you will be taken to the high mountain Son-Kul lake, where you will stay overnight in the national Kyrgyz yurts. Son-Kul is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan and it is located at an altitude of 3016 meters above sea level. From late September to mid-June, it is covered with ice and modern nomads bring cattle here only for the summer months. The wildlife of Son-Kul is extremely diverse. In summer, different types of ducks, gulls and other waterfowl nest here. Only in summer you can fully enjoy the blue waters of the lake, get acquainted with the life of nomads, live in Kyrgyz yurts and taste the national dishes of this hospitable people.
On the banks and surrounding slopes, a huge amount of grass grows. Here is a real paradise: fresh and clean mountain air, glades of edelweiss under your feet and at night a myriad of stars, like sparkling beads scattered across the sky.
