Today, tourists prefer to include in the tour program a visit to such famous lakes of the country as Issyk Kul, Son Kul and Chatyr Kul.
Issyk Kul is the most popular and visited lake in Kyrgyzstan by both travelers and local residents. Issyk Kul is the pearl of Kyrgyzstan and it is located in the heart of the Tien Shan Mountains. It is located at an altitude of 1600m, and the name in translation from Kyrgyz means "warm lake". Issyk Kul is so named because it never freezes even during the winter season. Another advantage of Issyk Kul is that it ranks second in transparency among all lakes in the world, second only to Lake Baikal. There is another famous mountain lake in the country that travelers can visit during the tour with car rent service and this is Son Kul Lake, located at an altitude of 3016 m above sea level. At Son Kul, tourists can enjoy walks in the green summer pastures. The waters of the Kajyrty and Naryn rivers feed this amazing lake.
The next lake that we would like to mention here is Chatyr Kul Lake located at an altitude of 3530 m above sea level. Tourists can reach it by rented the car service. By the way, Chatyr Kul is located along the Chinese border of Torugart. During the tour with rented the car service, the travelers can learn about such an amazing "disappearing" Lake Merzbacher. It disappears every summer. One of the most beautiful lakes in Kyrgyzstan is Sary Chelek, formed because of the flooding of the valley. The nature surrounding the lake is incredibly beautiful. There are forests and trees all around here, the air is fresh and the water is clean. However, tourists will not be able to enter the territory of the lake on their own, since it is under control.
