Song K?l Lake, Kyrgyzstan | 25 August, 2006 | $6.36
Although Song K?l is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan its incredibly inaccessible and only inhabited from June to September. I booked a homestay with a local herder through CBT and caught a car up from Kochkor with the couple I’d been traveling with and one additional random tourist from Portugal. There is no public transportation to the lake and our little Russian car had to stop three times to pour water over the radiator when it overheated. If I go to Kyrgystan again I’d love to take a long horse trip around this area. We paid an additional $4.58 for meals (eggs, mutton stew, rice pudding and stale bread) over our two night stay.
