Tour to Sary-Chelek Lake for 3 days

We are happy to offer a weekend tour to Sary-Chelek, one of the most beautiful lakes in the country! It is surrounded by walnut and fruit forests and more than 1000 species of plants, 160 species of birds. Additionally, 34 species of mammals (such as the deer, bear, lynx and wolf) can be found in this relatively small and unspoiled park. The views on the way to the lake are stunning and it is totally an -worthy place to travel! 
The road wounds up and down several mountain passes above 3500 meter, before opening up to the green pastures of the Suusamyr valley where shepherds herd their flock. Then it takes visitors around the immense Toktogul reservoir down the deep Naryn River Gorge.
