Additional Background:

 

One of the things that makes Karakol unique: it’s a crossroads of ethnicities, cultures and cuisines. In this tour, you’ll learn about and taste lagman, a Uighur dish whose roots trace back to western China. After a hands-on experience of stretching and working your own hand-pulled noodles, you’ll taste the results of your efforts in a homemade Uighur meal of lagman, samsa and salads.

 

Even if you’ve tried lagman in restaurants, this tour is still for you. Nothing beats Gulya’s homemade version!
