Kel-Suu (Köl Suu) on a Budget

Now you can experience our same, amazing Kel-Suu Tour for a fraction of the cost! Known for its pristine turquoise waters and stunning views, Kel-Suu is quickly becoming a must see destination in Kyrgyzstan. Kel-Suu translates to coming water, referring to the fact that the lake routinely drains completely then refills. The lake formed as the result of a landslide sometime in the 1980s and is therefore a relatively recent addition to Kyrgyzstan's scenic destinations. Located just 12km from the Chinese border and over 3500m above sea level Kel-Suu is also one of the countries most remote destinations. To get to there we will drive on rough roads, pass through secure border checkpoints, and trek on horseback. However, it will all be worth it once we arrive at the otherworldly landscape of Kel-Suu. Whether there is water or not, with its staggering mountain peaks, mysterious caves, and picturesque beauty, Kel-Suu is truly a sight to behold.

We'll start our journey to Kel-Suu from Bishkek. On the way we'll make our first stop in Tokmok at Burana Tower. A famous destination itself, this tower and mausoleum complex are the last remains of ancient city of Balasagun. Take some time to relax, and wander the grounds. Make sure to climb to the top of the tower for some beautiful views of area. We'll arrive in Naryn in the late afternoon. Take advantage of some free time before dinner to explore the town. Our second day we'll start with a visit to the 15th century caravansary, Tash Rabat. Explore the complex and imagine yourself as a traveler or trader on the marvelous Silk Road. We'll eat lunch in the shadow of this silk road relic before heading to our ultimate destination Kel-Suu. When we arrive we'll have dinner with our host then warm up around a roaring bonfire. The third day is the moment you have been waiting for! In the morning we'll hike to the shores of Kel-Suu. After hiking over the last crest you're sure to have your breath taken away by your sublime surroundings. You'll have plenty of time to snap some amazing photos while you explore the cliffs and caves around the lake. On day four of our tour we'll return to Naryn, but first, on the way we'll take a horse riding excursion to Shaar Waterfall. When we arrive we'll break for a late picnic lunch on the shores of the river. After we take some time to explore the area we'll head back to Naryn City where we'll spend the evening. Our tour to Kel-Suu ends with our transfer back to Bishkek.
