Tour to Sary Chelek National Park, which was founded in 1959 to protect and research the pristine natural landscapes — lowland steppes and ridges with snow-capped peaks. The lake itself is situated some 1873 meters above sea level, it stretches for some 7.5 kilometers, varying in width from 350 m. The waters often appear a greenish shade of blue — and make attractive photographs. The Lake’s picturesque shores are thought by many of the local population to be the most beautiful in Kyrgyzstan. The steep slopes, (in places sheer), are covered with pine, silver fir and archa (myrtle) trees.
