Song Kol exceeds all cliches. A shallow basin surrounded by a ring of mountains, with the lake in the middle and the sky above. It's a bit over 3000 metres and has very changeable weather, and all three seasons, Autumn, Winter and Spring. We had blue sky, thunderclaps, rain and sleet.
We were made very welcome at Jolamon and Zamira's yurt-stay, described accurately by Naryn CBT as a good Kyrgyz family. The kids put on a show for us on the first night. To see our welcome concert to Song Kol click HERE
