Song Kol Lake, Naryn
(4.7/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
An alpine body of water, Song Kol Lake provides for leisurely exploration of an unspoiled natural environment and a glimpse into a simple life of the herders that live in the area. Lying at an altitude of 3,016 m (9,895 ft), the lake covers an area of about 270 sq km (104 sq mi) on a vast plain bordered by dramatic mountain ranges. Here you'll be able to take hikes into the surrounding mountains, frolic in the lake, and take horse treks around the region. Prettily decorated yurts serve as authentic places to stay, while the local herders provide supplies. Bear in mind that this remote destination is only reachable by car. Arrange your visit to Song Kol Lake and discover more family-friendly attractions in Naryn using our Naryn tourist route planner.

Then we went through (the highest point was the Sary Bel-pass with 3650 m) a four-day hike across the mountains from here two canyons to the Naryn Valley. On the way, we passed through the summer camps of the standard Aden where we were also invited to a glass of mare's milk. A great landscape still untouched just awesome.

  • A huge Lake of more than 3000 m above sea level, where you can get either on horseback or on foot (or even by car, but I would still like the option of return). It's a trip so to at least 2, before 3 days, depending on the condition (we went on foot). You can pay either with the local jurtách (400-700 I/os per night) or in tents. Whereas all animals graze, the problem may be with the drinking water, I definitely recommend taking tablets to disinfect water. The weather changes several times a day, we have enjoyed from slnečna through rain, hail, wind up after the storm. But it was worth it:)
