Ak-Tash Nomad's Land Yurt Camp

Ak-Tash (which means "white stone" in Kyrgyz) lies at the foot of the great forests of Chong Kyzyl Suu Valley. The red rock hills form an incredible contrast between the blue Issyk Kul lake and the large meadows covered with edelweiss. In summer, the Ak-Tash yurt camp provides a stopover for overnight stays if you come on horseback or on foot from the Jukku Valley or Jeti Oguz. In winter, yurts become a base camp for ski touring. It is situated 15km south from chef-lieu Kyzyl-Suu. An ideal place to enjoy the slopes of Siuttu Bulak, Giukiuro, Burgan-Suu, and the mountains overlooking the Kichi-Kyzyl-Suu Gorge. Gradients of more than 1500 meters and descents of more than 6 km are possible in this region. The hot springs of Chong Kyzyl Suu are located 4km upstream, before reaching the geophysical station located 4km higher than the springs.

The camp is equipped with a sauna and a comfortable toilet. Our cook will prepare you with love of typical dishes of the region. In winter, one can also observe a rock of jade hidden in the bed of the river and visible only in winter. Price per person is for one night inside a traditional yurt, including 3 meals and banya (russian sauna). 50% discount for kids under 10 y.o. 6 person per yurt maximum, 12 beds capacity at the camp.
