You start to feel the taste of life and you understand - the best architecture in the world is the Mother Nature!


Tour summary:

Day 1: Bishkek - Karakol
When you land at Manas International airport you will be met by your guide and be escorted to Bishkek city. This is going to take you only 30 minutes drive after which you will be served a wonderfully prepared breakfast. Then you will be transferred to the celestial Issyk Kul Lake (200 km), the second biggest lake in the world after Titikaka in South America found at the altitude of 1608 m.a.s.l., also know as "the pearl of Central Asia".  On our way, we will visit the Burana Tower (minaret from the 11th century) and an open air museum of Balbans (stone warriors). Also you will have an opportunity to visit ancient stone inscriptions (dating back to 800 B.C.), including the local museum. National dinner will be in a restaurant  at 8 p.m. Also for additional price you can have a folklore show there. Night in a Guesthouse.

Day 2: Karakol - Chong Kyzyl Suu Valley

We have to take breakfast at 8 o'clock. The entire morning is dedicated to a guided Karakol City Tour. The tour includes the visit of the Dungan mosque. One of its highlights is the fact that it is built in Chinese style without using a single metal nail. This will be followed by the visit of an old wooden Orthodox Church. Later, you will visit the museum of M.V. Prejvalsky, one of the world's greatest explores. His most boasting achievements were the crossing of the great desert Taklamakan and the discovery of more than 4000 animals, including the Horse of Prejevalsky.

Afterwards, a horseback riding tour to the Physical and Geographical station of Chong Kyzyl Suu is waiting for you (1 hour). Your dinner and overnight stay will be in yurts. A yurta is a unique nomadic dwelling made of wooden skeleton and thick layers of felt without using a single nail. It is extremely aerodynamic and portable and that is why people could not have found any better analogue for such an amazing home for more than two thousands years.
