By the northern side of Son-Kul lake
(Horse riding trip to Son-Kul lake)
Son-Kul is a lake of extraordinary beauty, hidden among the high mountains of the Tien Shan. It is impossible to take your eyes off the blue of the water surface, which reflects the heavenly blue and contrasts with the emerald color of the jailoo, high-altitude pastures painted with a flower carpet surrounding the lake. Glades of edelweiss are scattered under your feet as stars and drops of morning dew resemble crystal beads, shimmering with all the colors of the rainbow.
It will be an amazing and exciting adventure. You will be like a great traveler of the Middle Ages; mountain passes, gorges and valleys are waiting for you where there are no man-made buildings except for the yurts of the shepherds which they erect every summer bringing herds of livestock (horses, cows, sheep and even yaks and camels) to graze in the summer months ... Once upon a time, caravans of merchants passed here and the cavalry of the great khans guarded the borders of immense possessions. To this day, in the local area you can find Chinese, Turgesh, Turkic coins, head adornments, buckles and arrowheads which were forgotten or lost during the existence of the Great Silk Road.
The greatness of the Tien Shan mountains takes your breath away, the space that opens up to the eyes of the traveler fascinates and brings a feeling of complete freedom which we all lack so much in our stuffy big cities. We invite you to forget about the hustle and bustle and leave the noisy streets, breathe in the fresh mountain air and finally plunge into the atmosphere of peace and quiet, beauty and grandeur of nature.
