Take a 5-day horse trek to the fabulous lake "Kel Suu" (Upcoming, stay tuned)

Tour Highlights

On this 5-day horseback ride you'll pass through the impressive mountain world of the Tien-Shan to the mountain lake "Kel Suu". This ride takes you past untouched forests, through deep gorges and over lovely high pastures into the high valley "Ak Say". You will pass the Bogoshty Pass at an altitude of 3,900m.

It will be a challenge to cross the Ak Say river on horseback. After crossing the river you'll go up into the mountains again. Twice you will spend the night in a tent, once up in the mountains and once on the riverbank. Cooking is done around the campfire.

At the end of the tour you will come to Jirgal's yurt camp, where you will spend the last night. On the next day you'll need the horses again to ride to Kel Suu Lake and enjoy the fascinating view over the water that meanders through the wild mountain world.

...but you also know that the lake sometimes has no water. Then the view leads over a bizarre desert of clay and rock. But this has the advantage that the remote part of the 'lake' can be visited on foot.
