«The aquamarine in the silver setting of mountains» - this is how the famous traveller Semionov-Tianshanski has characterised Issyk-Kul lake. It is the second largest mountain-lake (1,600 m above sea level) after Lake Titicaca in South America. By depth, (668 m) and water volume it is the biggest in the world. The average water temperature in Summer is 19-22C. We can offer you a choice of private houses or cottages near the lake (800 m), in the resort village of Cholpon-Ata, on the northern shore of Issyk-Kul.
