Bel Tam yurt camp

A lovely yurt camp from the local ecotourism association CBT on the South shore of the Issyk Kul lake. The yurt camp is open all the year around. 

Bel Tam is a really nice place to stay on the beach of Issyk Kul lake. The lake is within walking distance from the camp. Backpackers are authorized to put their tent next on the territory of the camp and use the commodities of the camp, for 3 dollars per day. Some yurts are equipped with standard single beds, some yurts are equipped with toshoks, the traditionnal kyrgyz bedding, made out of several layers of stuffed carpets.

Children discount : free till 6 years old; 6 to 12 years old 50% discount.

Meals are taken in the big yurt-canteen. The food is really nice, and diverse. Vegetarian-friendly!

The outside canteen is also really delightful, next to the bar. Beer, vodka, cognac and sodas are usually available for sale. Hot shower and western toilets available. Possible to do laundry (charged). Electricity available to reload electronic equipments. No WIFI but a play ground for kids.

Bel Tam camp is really busy during summertime, make sure to book your yurt beforehand!
