Overview

Kol Suu is a spectacular glacial lake set in a rocky canyon whose shear sides drop almost straight down into the lake. It's difficult to get to, but is one of the most beautiful spots in all of Kyrgyzstan. It is located in the southeast of Naryn Oblast, near the Chinese border.

It's far away from Bishkek, near the border with China, and you need special border zone permit in order to pass a checkpoint. But even after the check-point it's still a few hours driving by 4x4 car until you get there. Not far from the...More

Worth the long driving. Be sure to tell your drivers to go all the way to the lake- its possible. Check the weather and come when its sunny.

Best place in At-Bashy region. Long drive and rough roads, but worth the trip! Stay at a yurt camp close to this amazing location. Hike, explore, or kayak in the mountains. Clean, pristine, and peaceful destination.
