Our party preferred a French-speaking local guide and you found someone who was both knowledgeable and helpful. We would recommend her to anyone with the same needs.

Karakol

The fourth-largest city in Kyrgyzstan, Karakol - formerly known as Przhevalsk - lies in the northeastern corner of the country, on the east side of the Issyk Kul Lake and near the Chinese border. The city, originally founded as a Russian outpost, is situated close to the Tien Shan mountain range, making for an excellent starting point for a mountain trekking, hiking, or skiing trip.

The city itself a main hub for tourism in the region, Karakol describes its rich history through the monuments, museums, and religious institutions that line its city streets. Whether used as a homebase for a mountain trek or as a city break destination, Karakol has much to offer all kinds of visitors.
