After a lunch we move to Cholpon Ata, a resort town with a population of 40,000 people, situated on the northern shore of large alpine Lake Issyk Kul, the pearl of Kyrgyzstan.
Lake Issyk Kul (“warm lake” in Kyrgyz) - a natural wonder of Central Asia!
Bishkek was originally designed and built in 1868 as a Russian military garrison base.
Independent since 1991, modern city of 1 million-odd population still is regarded as one of the most Russian-speaking cities of Central Asia.
Bishkek is a city of wide streets, marble-faced public buildings and numerous Soviet-style apartment blocks with interior courtyards, as well as thousands of smaller privately built houses outside the city center.
It is laid out on a grid pattern, with most streets flanked on both sides by innumerable trees which provide shade in the hot summers.
The phenomenon of Issyk Kul lake is not only in its being world’s second largest alpine lake but also that, despite altitude (1.608m), it never gets ice on its surface.
Sightseeing program in Bishkek: The Alatau Square, the main square of the city, with the government building and fountains.
At the Independence monument in the square you can watch the changing guards.
Kyrgyz National Philharmonic Hall named after Toktogul Satylganov.
