Rank : 9.0 (average on 2 votes)

Coordinates : 41.818363, 75.150728 (Open in Google Maps)

Subjects : You are in front of an incredible scenery, a plateau surrounded by mountains, with a huge lake in the middle, with free animals grazing under the watchful eye of seasonal inhabitants, Kyrgyz nomads, who bring their beasts to eat grass and Flowers in this unspoiled place by spending the summer season in local tents (yurte kirghize).

Recommended equipment : Surely a wide angle to capture the landscape, at dawn as at sunset, to be left breathless. A teleobjective if you love to capture the details of animals and faces of Kyrgyz shepherds and their wonderful and hospitable families.

Best months : Accessible from May to September for climatic reasons. Only in this period is it possible to come into contact with the locals who, being nomads, bring beasts to graze along the banks of this lake; With the arrival of the cold, they remove the curtains (Yurte) and go downhill with their animals.

How to get there : From Italy with a flight to Biskek, capital of Kyrghizstan. From there with a local guide. Or renting a car (I recommend checking the presence of spare tire). There is no public transport. From the capital I recommend an intermediate stage as the roads are mostly dirt, you travel on average 50km / h, you can also make several miles without meeting people and houses.

Visits : Free admission is not a protected park. There are no fences.

Notes : Even in the summer, temperatures may drop below zero in the night. There is no water system, not even running baths. The only buildings around the lake are sparuto yurte of nomadic breeders. Some of them rent out some of them for tourists; They are recognized by signs along the only road that runs around the lake. Needed adaptation spirit.
