Camping in Altyn Arashan a valley and mountain resort near Karakol and Issyk Kul Lake. It lies along the trekking route from Teploklyuchenka. Much of the area is a botanical research and is home to about 20 snow leopards and a handful of bears, although the only animals you’re likely to see are the horses and sheep belonging to local families.

Weather and temperature can vary from summer to winter in a few hours. Why do people wash clothes when it is so unpredictable? It has rained a lot so the truck is full of oversized garments that people are trying to dry 🙂

Diety Orgus, camping again with lots of rain, for a brief moment the sun lights up the mountain side.
