Among the best places to visit in Kyrgyzstan are the famous Issyk Kul Lake, the world’s second largest mountain lake (oh, and it’s salted!), in which’s water you can find the ruins of an ancient city; the paradisiacal Son Kul Lake and its summer yurts; or the Alai and Pamir mountains in the south of the country. You’ll find valleys and glaciers just about anywhere to hike and pitch your tent…
