Tour Program

Day
1
Bishkek city – Song Kul Lake ( 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 Song Kul Lake.

On the way you stop in Kochkor village where you will watch how local people make felt, various carpets (called shyrdaks), embroidering and spinning, and other handicraft stuff. We also visit a handicraft museum and a shop, where you can buy different masterpieces – starting from huge felt-silk blankets, finishing with small Christmas tree decorations. After lunch in a local family in Kochkor we continue driving to Son Kul Lake.

Son Kul is used by the shepherds from the Kochkor, Naryn and At Bashi regions as a jailoo – a pasture during the summer months. It is considered the pearl of Kyrgyz djailoos. The route to Song Kul winds through mountainous terrain until it seems to disappear into the very sky itself. This is probably why Son Kul is translated from Kyrgyz as “the last lake”. Dinner and overnight in yurt camp.
