The price for this tour will be 1200$.

All included in price:

-Three time meals.

- Car, driver (also a guide with a good english),petrol, drivers expences.

Due to the weather (it gets really snowy in there) the road to Kel-suu lake might be closed thats why i replaced it with a tour to Song kul lake, which is also very beautiful.

But if the road will be open we will go to Kel-Suu lake)

Hello, to see the Kol-Suu you need to get birder zone permit and this year the lake doesn't have water.

Check for weather forecast.

It will be cold up at Son-Kol and most if the Yurts will move down.

Sure,it's possible! It could be some snow in the mountains but in October all those places are accessible by good SUV .

Lust year we went to Kelsuu in February...

Best wishes
