Question: Song Kul lake in May

Hello everyone,

I know this does not come as a surprise, but I am also interested in visiting Song Kul lake while being in Kyrgyzstan. I will be arriving in Osh at around 2nd of May and I would like to understand possibilities / suggestions on heading to Song Kul from there. Alternatively, I am thinking of flying to Bishkek and moving on to Song Kul from there.

Obviously I am interested on the most on-a-budget way, so please do not propose expensive tours, as I will be on my own and I cannot afford to pay the full price for such an organized tour :-) But I do thank you in advance for taking the time to share with me your suggestions.

Greetings, Stavroula

Hi ! 

Now in Song Kul there is snow, in the end of may it will be possible to visit  but not for sure. 

From Osh to Song Kul there is direct way through jalal abad to naryn but now is closed. Alternative way is osh - Bishkek - naryn.
