Today, covering 45km from the capital everyone is able to visit this location and get to the heights of the park based at the Tien Shan mountain range. Night is given in the hotel. 

Day 2: Bishkek – Burana – Issyk Kul northern shore

All along this lake is identified as the pearl of the country and Central Asia as well. Having the lake close to the locals, for about 1500 years they considered it being sacred lake. The peculiarity of the water pond is seen in it being salty, probably this is the explanation of curative qualities. For arriving at the lake, we pass Burana Tower, the minaret of the 11th century, being based with the Balbals (stone warriors) at its territory as well. Night is given in the hotel.

Day 3: Issyk Kul Lake – Bishkek
Still in the region of Issyk Kul guests wander about the territory for seeing various pictures made on the stones. All of them are seen as ancient makings, by the people living here about 2 000 years ago, as here we can find petroglyphs made by shamans! At the same time these stones were not moved, and you are able to see purely and totally an ancient creation. As we are in Issyk Kul, this is a chance to wander about its territory for pretending being in the center of the world. But then we return back to Bishkek, and visit the local Asian Bazaar. Here local life can be noticed, along with the opportunity to make great photos of the local life. All along national fabrics, clothes and souvenirs can be bought here.

There are various legends concerning the creation of it, which are going to be given to the guests in the course of their traveling here, but we would like to inform of it being created in the result of an earthquake.

There was an idea to take the area of 23 thousand 868 hectares, for saving unique flora and fauna. That is why charm of animals and plants is still living here. This is one of the most visited locations among the wanderers. By the way, the name of the lake means from Kyrgyz as “yellow bowl”. It can be described by the shape of the bowl and yellow leaved reflecting in the water. In the past times it was possible to swim in the lake, or have a boat trip, but now all this is prohibited, for saving ecology.
