Kol Ukok Lake

3 Days Horse Riding to Kol Ukok lake

2 Day





“Kol-Ukok” means ‘The Lake in a Chest’ and is nestling between two steep slopes in the North-Eastern Terskei Ala Too Mountains. The water is sweet and cold. The maximum depth is 17 m. A white fish, and Savan trout — a regal, multi-hued fish — live in the lake. The lakeshore is totally peaceful and quiet. On the way there you may see marmots and badgers, hear mountain birds singing or the cry of an eagle, hawk or griffin. Wolves, jackals, foxes, hares, and mountain goats live here. Around the lake the diversity and originality of flowers – from forgot-me-not to legend edelweiss – will enchant you. Many plants — rhubarb, wild garlic, etc. — served the ancients as a source of vitamins. Most importantly, you will be welcomed by hospitable people, descendants of ancient nomads, who drive their cattle here from May to October. Throughout the tour, you will observe the shepherds lifestyle, customs and family traditions, as well as see them making traditional, national Kyrgyz milk products – kymyz (fermented mare milk), airan (Kyrgyz yogurt), and kurut (dried salty cheese). Here you can also see cows and horses being milked and will be able to watch bread being prepared.
