Ala Kul is a beautiful, glacier-fed lake high in the mountains above Karakol. It is a challenging hike, with lots of climbing, but well worth the trouble of getting there. You must cross several boulder fields on the way up to the lake, so wear sturdy boots. And the lake is at an elevation of about 3,552 meters, so it can snow at any time of year. The hike can be done in as little as three very long, challenging days, but four days is the standard time for this hike. At Altyn Arashan there are hot springs and several guesthouses where you can soak in them. It's a great way to spend the last evening on the trail.

Are you tired of skiing the same resorts and cutting the same lines?
Are you looking for a backcountry adventure where you're able to skin from the doors of your camp?
Here at Nomad's Land, we have the local knowledge of the best places to ski tour and which aspects are the safest to ski. On our tours, we love to have a mix of skinning, skiing, horseback riding, snowshoeing and cat skiing in one tour. In addition, we have some really amazing base camps, ski in ski out Yurts near Karakol, guesthouses at the foot of the mountains in Chong Kemin and Arslanbob, amazing alpine huts in Altyn-Arashan and Chong Kyzyl Suu and even in Suusamyr. Depending on the wishes of our guests we are able to provide them Kyrgyz, Russian and Swiss Guides or you can bring your own guide with you. No matter what type of adventure you're looking for, we have the experience and local knowledge to make your trip to Kyrgyzstan unforgettable.

This is a great hike from Tash Rabat to Chatyr Kol. It's long, so if you are taking camping equipment, you would probably want to do this in two days. There is a yurt camp at the end of the hike, so you can do this with a day pack. There are yak herds along the trek, so you are likely to encounter them. They tend to be afraid of humans.
From Tash Rabat, follow the river up the valley. About half-way up the valley (at about 40º46'37.9”N, 75º18'20.7” E), the river splits—follow the right (westerly) fork. When you come to the end of the valley, you can continue straight up, which is a tough climb; left (where the path is); or right (westerly). Any of these ways will take you to the lake, but you may have a hike to get to a yurt camp. The right (westerly) pass leads straight to a yurt camp. See note above about the waterfall on the way down. If you're camping, the left path is slightly easier. Note that if you take the right path, you won't be able to see the lake from the pass: the climb down bends to the left, at which point the lake will be visible (if there are no clouds).

Distance (one way): 21.6 kilometers

Start: 40º51'47.3”N, 75º16'37.5”E; elevation: 2,978 meters

End: 40º43'10.5”N,75º17'9.44” E; elevation 3,616 meters

Pass: 40º44'23.6”N, 75º17'26.9” E; elevation 3,996 meters

Total elevation gain (one way): 1,338 meters

Total elevation loss (one way): 703 meters

Difficulty: 4 (long, but not too steep, except at the pass. See note about bypassing the waterfall).
