Where to go in Naryn?

Going on a fascinating trip to Naryn and the region, be sure to visit:

  • Tash-Rabat is the oldest monument of the Middle Ages. The historical complex was built in the tenth century as a monastery. Four hundred years later, the landmark lost its original meaning (the spread of Islam began) and turned into an inn, where merchants, traders, ambassadors, travelers rested: all those who traveled the Silk Road. Tash-Rabat is the largest stone construction of Central Asian architecture. Thanks to its clear symmetry and location among the wilderness, the complex seems impregnable and harsh;
  • Son-Kul is one of the largest lakes in Kyrgyzstan. Even in summer the water temperature does not rise above 12 ° C, and in November the lake is frozen (until May). Around the lake are colorful meadows, on which in the warm season, shepherds drive their flocks: you can find many yurts here. Almost every tourist tour includes a visit to the lake. There is no cell phone service, so this is a great opportunity to disconnect from the everyday world and enjoy nature;
  • Chatyr-Kul is a lake into which 17 rivers flow at once. The name is translated as “heavenly lake”, although the climate here is very harsh. In January, the air temperature in the area of the lake drops to -50 ° C, the water freezes. The attraction attracts tourists with its mineral waters, rare species of waterfowl and the stupefying beauty of nature. Until recently, Chatyr-Kul was a secret, vacationers knew almost nothing about it. But now the lake is one of the main points when visiting Kyrgyzstan.
