Son Kul Lake

Son Kul Lake

Son Kul Lake is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan after Issyk-Kul and due to its remote location, offers a glimpse into the life of nomadic Kyrgyz herders. The high-altitude lake is surrounded by yurts and lush pastures, called jailoo, where animals graze in the summer months. All the routes down to the lake offer spectacular views.
