Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan

 Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan

It’s finally summertime, which means everyone wants to be on the waterfront. Some people head to the ocean. Others have their own pool. But most go to a lake. How far will you go to find the perfect lakeside setting? The Great Lakes in the US? The Lake District in Patagonia? Or the lake region in northern Italy? If you’re willing to travel for a gorgeous lake, add Issyk Kul to your ever-expanding list.

Three Days side trip to Lake issyk, Kyrgyzstan

In mid April, while waiting for our Tajik and Afghan visas in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and  before we could start cycling south, we had the opportunity to be able to go and tour the glorious Issyk-Kul lake.

Over 170 kms long and  70 kms across, it is the second-largest alpine in the world, after Lake Titicaca in South America. Its name Issyk-Köl, means “hot lake”: a combination of extreme depth, thermal activity and mild salinity ensures the lake never freezes. Its moderating effect on the climate, plus abundant rainfall, have made it something of an oasis through the centuries, a force of nature! IMG_0291

Golden Nature of Altyn-Arashan

I think, I been in Altyn-Arashan more than twenty times. And I wish to go there again and again. I do not know, but, mountains, lakes in short nature always pulls 384861_10150375879684213_518284212_8477793_2108298456_nme to itself. I think that I cannot live without nature of my native country. Now I live in a good place, where the air is cleanest in the world.

In land-locked Kyrgyzstan, a trip to the beach involves a drive up into the mountains – where instead of consuming ice lollies and fizzy drinks, bathers tuck into kebabs and down vodka shots

The porter was weeping quietly on my shoulder, and the cleaner – in a faded pink smock and scuffs – was painstakingly removing one key at a time, shuffling across the counter, sighing heavily before going back for another. I could see our stay at the Aurora Hotel in Kyrgyzstan was going to be a little fraught.
