Song Kul is a large lake, swimming with fish and surrounded by herders’ hurts and their large herds of horses, cows and sheep.
The herders only stay the summer as the lake is at high altitude (3016m) and very cold otherwise.
There’s not much to do other than horse riding…
Trekking uphill for better views of the lake
Or relaxing among the edelweiss
The absence of phone connectivity and limited electricity supply meant that overall time passed quite slowly.
If you wake up in the middle of the night, you’ll see a brilliant starry night sky, which showcases the centre of the milky way.
Song Kul is a wonderful place to enjoy the views and remove oneself of the buzz of online life, as well as everyday conveniences such as radiators, showers, toilets with a flush….
