Couple of itinerary questions

Postby IodinePit » Sun Mar 18, 2018 4:12 am

Hey there,
I am planning a trip to Kyrgystan and I had a few itinerary questions.

I am trying to work in a trek based out of Karakol, 1-2 nights at Lake Song-Kul, and a visit to Tash Rabat, all within 10 days. This leaves some pretty slim margins for transportation. From everything I have read the marshrutka system seems pretty reliable and I guess there is always the taxi option. Just wondering if this seems advisable or not though.

I've also read about some recent development in Jyrgalan to support trekking, and it's kind of interesting to me because there might be fewer people. Heard anything about that village? Is the other trekking around Karakol quite crowded in summer?

Marshrutkas are really only an option from Karakol to Kochkor, and between Naryn and Kockkor/Bishkek. You will need private transport up to Song Kul and from Naryn to Tash Rabat. Don't know how long your trek in Karakol is, but it does seem like a very tight schedule unless you have everything pre-arranged.
