This has to be a big statement coming from someone who has barely sat on a horse before, but it’s hard to imagine many other places as beautiful to go on a horse trek.

It’s beautiful for everything that is there, not just the scenery, but also the people you meet, and the traditional way of life.

Song Kol Lake is in a perfect setting where reaching it on horses involves riding high over mountain passes, while staying with nomad families in yurts.

This is an excellent guide for trekking in Kyrgyzstan for more outdoors adventures there.
