Song Kol, Kyrgyzstan

Song Kol is a gem of a place.

It is tucked away in a natural bowl formed by the surrounding mountains and during the summer months nomadic herdsmen set up yurt camps in the fertile pastures surrounding the lake.

Visitors diverting from the road to China can soak up the splendour of the region before making the final push for the border.

Yurt accommodation

Yurts dot the southern shore and make for a wonderful place to stay.
