To get to the lake, we need to pass the boom gorge and the Moldo Ashuu pass. Son Kul is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan after lake Issyk Kul. There is a large number of tourist routes, and due to the convenient geographical location of the lake, a trip from one part of the country to another can be combined with a visit to Son Kul.

Day 4 | Son kul – Tash Rabat

After breakfast in the yurt camp, we go towards Tash Rabat Caravanserai.

Tash Rabat is probably Kyrgyzstan’s most remarkable monument; indeed, it is one of the most interesting sites in the entire central Asian region and its presence is in complete contradiction to the popular tenet that Kyrgyzstan is all about landscapes rather than historical sights. Tash Rabat is a Silk Road monument par excellence: a small but perfectly formed 15th-century caravanserai that sheltered an array of merchants and travelers along with one of the wilder stretches of the Silk Road. Its location is even more remarkable: tucked away from sight, half-buried in a hillside, up a valley at 3,530m above sea level.

Lunch, dinner and overnight in yurt camp.
