Trekking from Ak-Tal to Son Kol

Postby Meljon2016 » Fri Jul 22, 2016 5:31 pm


So, two things....

1) Has anyone hiked in from Ak Tal to Son Kol lake? Is it very difficult and is there drinkable water along the way? And how long would it take? We only have 6 days to get from Jalal-Abad to Son Kol and start heading back to Bishkek, and we're looking for a budget and time friendly option, which as far as we can see could be taking public transport from Jalal Abad to Ak Tal, then hiking in, but we can't find information about the route. Or is it more realistic to try to get to the North side and hike in from there (seems to be the most popular option, but will take much longer to get to).

2) if anyone would like to share a taxi leaving the 24th in the morning from Jalal-Abad to that area, it would be great to go together! We're a couple so we'd just need two more people.

Thank you so much!!!
