    What an amazing experience. For a small museum, the place is jam-packed with artefacts and memorabilia. Sadly most are in Russian, but we were fortunate to have a military person who happened to visit...  more »

    Beautiful discovery that a visit to this museum located in the main street of Cholpon Ata (Sovetskaya), introduction to the visit of the petroglyphs site that her lies to the West of the city, near the old airport runway: history of the region, presentation of the Yssyk-Kul Lake and its eco-system (Nice layout),... Too bad that the legends of the cartels are not or very little, translated into English!

    For those who love the history of Kyrgyzstan. From the first people to present. Very unusual.

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.
