Lake Kol-Ukok, which means “lake in a chest”, a jailoo and a lake in the area near the village of Kochkor in the Naryn region on the Teskey-Ala-Too ridge. Along the way, you can meet many yurts and shepherds, wolves, foxes, hares and mountain goats, as well as many wild plants and flowers, such as wild garlic and edelweiss. The lake can be reached on foot or by horse, and from there take a short hike.
The lake itself is an ideal place to relax in silence, contemplating the calm surface of the lake. Crystal clear, cold water, the depth in some places reaches 17 meters. The most desperate travelers stay here for the night.
On the rocky shore of Lake Kol-Ukok, you can make a fire, have a snack and warm up. Interestingly, trees do not grow in this area, but there are many flowers and stones. You can get to the lake through the village of Kochkor or Kara-Suu on a horse.
