  • Nice place for a day-trip to enjoy the beautiful nature. I hitchhiked from and to Karakol and it was much easier than taking the bus.
  • Absolutely stunning! It's about a half hour drive from the main road. If you have a 4x4 you can drive up a hill, otherwise walk, to get a stunning view of the Seven Bulls and surrounding mountains. HIGHLY recommend!
