Permit for overnight camping at Chatyr Kul

Postby gazoil » Wed Jul 17, 2019 2:01 pm

Hi, we are planning to cross China to Kyrgyzstan in about 2 weeks and wish to stay for a night at Chatyr Kul lake. Do we need any special permits for that (we'll be driving own vehicle from china, so we will be passing border zone anyway)? If yes - how long it takes to get this permit, can it be emailed to us or what are our options?
Thanks a lot!

in 2 weeks you cannot get the permit - it needs at leats 4 weeks to preceed (as it is official and must be signed of a big fish in bishkek). you can take it from a cbt office, e.g. in naryn - you can ask via email, pay online (western union), but receive in person only.

but if you come from torugart - i guess you don't need it as the check post is here:

(i don 't know if the border guards take up the patrols at night, probably yes, so don't be surprised with their visit).
but be careful when you drive down from the road to the lake - the grounds at the lake are wetlands. the area is very windy. maybe it is better to take a night at tash rabat as it is located in the side valley (and outside the border zone). and there are yurt camps.
