How to choose a yurt camp to stay on the northern shore of Song kul?

Postby stevesayskanpai » Sun Apr 29, 2018 8:55 pm

Hi, I plan to walk to Song kul from Kyzart, and then get a lift out to Kochkor

1. What's the best way to choose a yurt camp to stay at?
2. Would it be better to leave some of my possessions in Kyzart and walk back to Kyzart after visiting the lake, rather than hoping to find a lift back from Song kul to Kochkor?

If you have time, just walk around and ask for prices, ask what's for dinner. You will get a feel for the personality. Some people are wonderful, some others might be just in it for the money.

I am not sure how long it would take you to find a lift back from Song Kol. There is definitely transport coming and going, sooner or later you would get a lift, but I am not able to say if it will be sooner,...or later :-)
