Tour Program

 

Day
1
Bishkek city – Issyk Kul Lake (260 km)
Itinerary
We will pick you up from the place we agree beforehand in Bishkek city (it can be a hotel, a guest house, etc. any address).

Today we will drive to Issyk Kul Lake. Measuring 182 km long by 58 km wide, the lake appeared as a result of volcanic activity. It is heated from below by thermal activity and never freezes even in the depths of winter. In summer the water temperature reaches 25-28 degrees centigrade (warmer than the air) and you can swim in the lake enclosed on all sides by the snowy peaks of Tien Shan Mountains. Extremely deep and nicely warm, over the centuries the lake has been something of an oasis in this inhospitable mountain environment.

In that day you also visit Ethnographical Museum and so called “Stone garden” or Cholpon Ata Petroglyphs site, the temple in the open air of the Scythians and the Hung suns civilizations dated back 8-6 centuries BC till 3-4 centuries AD. The area of those stone drawing lies at the foot of Kungei Alatau Ridge with a beautiful view of the whole lake.

After excursion accommodation in the hotel.
