3 days hiking to Song Kul's lake
First in Kyrgyzstan, Nomad's Land invite you all the year around to our yurt camp at the Song Kul's lake.
After breakfast, you will be on the road to reach the high gorge of Kilemche (2500 meter altitude).You will have lunch along the way in a family house in Kyzart village.
From Kyzart, by car we reach the entrance of the gorge, then hike to Kilemche gorge. Installation in a shepherd's house, and freetime to have short walk around. Dinner and overnight in the shepherd's house.
Kilemche is a gorge situated on the North-East of the Song Kul lake.
This day program can be organised the whole year around, in winter we can hike or snowshoe.
Early morning, you leave the Kilemche pasture and hike to Song Kul's lake by the Tuz Ashuu pass (3228 meters alt.). We arrive to our yurt camp for lunch, then free time to walk around and visit fishermen. Dinner and overnight in a sherpherd's yurt camp.(In winter, it is also possible to join the yurt camp with snowshoes)
In the morning, we take the road to the valley of Jumgal that we go down to the small village of Aral, from there the road goes up the canyon of Kekemeren, very colorful. Lunch with a Kyrgyz family in the village of Kyzyl Oï. In the afternoon, the road goes up to the Toe Ashuu Tunnel that connects the Suusamyr Valley to the Chuy Valley. Arrival in Bishkek, installation in hotel.
1 week of exploration around Kel-Suu at the top, despite the vagaries of the weather. We can only salute the seriousness and professionalism of the agency. Easy contact, team attentive. In addition to being able to discover a place that is difficult to access for independent hikers - and absolutely superb - we also took a real pleasure in getting into Kyrgyz culture more deeply. A big thank you to our great guide (Fabien) for having been able to motivate us whatever the circumstances, inventing new recipes based on kurut and allowing us to better understand the country. We hope to be able to leave with Nomad’s Land as soon as possible!
passionate, in love or passionately in love with Central Asia, professionalism, listening to our desires ...
