An alpine body of water, Song Kol Lake provides for leisurely exploration of an unspoiled natural environment and a glimpse into a simple life of the herders that live in the area. Lying at an altitude of 3,016 m (9,895 ft), the lake covers an area of about 270 sq km (104 sq mi) on a vast plain bordered by dramatic mountain ranges. Here you'll be able to take hikes into the surrounding mountains, frolic in the lake, and take horse treks around the region. Prettily decorated yurts serve as authentic places to stay, while the local herders provide supplies. Bear in mind that this remote destination is only reachable by car.
