FLOAT ON THE SURFACE
The Salt Lake is located 40km from Bokonbaevo. It is a unique place that you should definitely visit, when being at the South Shore. We will be glad to assist you in planning your trip to the Salt Lake.
Only about an hour away from Bokonbaevo, visitors in the area can see the salt lake “Tuz-kol”. It is surrounded by beautiful windswept rocks on the one side and a sandy beach on the other. With its huge amount of salt (up to 70%) visitors can float on the water surface with ease, and then relax while enjoying the picturesque scenery of mountains in the distance. Also, according to local people the lake's mud has therapeutic properties and is good for the skin.
So it is an excellent place to unwind after an exhausting trek. Just 100m away from Issyk-Kul Lake, visitors can later wash off and take a bath in the clean, blue water.
It is possible to stay overnight at nearby lodgings, including in a yurt. Or from Bokonbaevo, CBT staff can arrange transport for a half or full day trip to and from the lake.
