Song Kul Lake

Highly recommended
The country's most beautiful lake spreads out its calm waters at an altitude a little over 3 000m. If you've come away to think, then this is surely the place to do it, under a night sky that has been preserved from all light pollution. Revel in an extraordinary sense of freedom by setting off on horseback around the lake and into the neighbouring hills, and encountering the Kyrgyz, be they nomads, herdsmen or holidaymakers come to seek out peace and quiet on the shores of the lake.
