Where to stay in Cholpon Ata

A seasoned tourist destination, Cholpon Ata has a good set of accommodations, ranging from luxury resorts to humble hostels. The swankiest establishments lie on private beaches outside of town. You'll find a particularly representative cluster in Bosteri, about 10 km (6.2 mi) to the east. In Cholpon Ata proper, several budget lodgings sit on or near the main Sovetskaya Street that runs parallel to the lakeshore--choose from hostels, guesthouses, and hotels. Several mid-range and higher-end hotels put you right on the water, some with private beaches. For more privacy, look for rental villas and apartments.
