Surrounding the lake are the snowcapped Tian Shan mountains, towering as high as 13,000 feet in the sky. The lake itself reaches depths of over 2,000 feet. Boasting a long and storied history, the lake was once a stop along the ancient Silk Road. Our point is Karakol town, we will go there passing northern shore of Issyk Kul.

Day 4: Karakol – Jeti Oguz – Issyk Kul southern shore – Tamga
Our day will start from Jeti Oguz gorge. If you’ve spent even a few days in Kyrgyzstan, you’ve most likely already caught a glimpse of Jeti-Oguz. The Seven Bulls, protrusions of deep red rock rearing from the alpine forests, make up one of the country’s most beloved natural landmarks and evidently, few bus stops escaped being plastered with its signature image. Just a short 40-minutes from Karakol, verdant countryside gives way to snow-capped mountains, and the chiselled, burnt red rock face that forms the namesake of the region appears as if from nowhere. As such an iconic sight, how could gazing over the mighty bulls possibly not top this list. To get the postcard-perfect shot of the vibrant red rock line, follow the dusty road that winds up the hillside behind the village. From the top, you’ll see rolling hills to one side, the eroding marbled canyon on the other and the impressive seven bulls to the front – so don’t forget your camera. The broken heart, formed by a cleft at the back of the bulls, is another iconic sight in the area and, unsurprisingly, is the source of many tragic love stories. You can even try kumis in summer time, it is traditional Kyrgyz drink. We will continue our way along southern shore. You will spend the night in Tamga.
