It was truly an amazing experience for us.
Ash, the guide, was super knowledgeable and funny, never a dull moment with him. First, we visted Burana Tower in Tokmok town outside of Bishkek City and there we cllimb up the tower through dark, steep and winding stairways. Ash was all helpful and encouraging that we do it and was worth it when we reached the top. Afterwards, we then went around the vicinity of the tower to see and learnt about the grave markers, there was also a small museum that contains some artifacts found at site many years ago. Afterwards, we were treated a special lunch - local cusine - that we got to enjoy too. Then we headed to the beautiful and magnificent Issyk Kul Lake in the town of Cholpon-Ata, with a special boat ride - highlight was feeding the birds with bread and they got to catch it mid-air. Plus, the ladies in the boat were all awesome as they mingle and dance with us. Our last stop was an open air museum called Ruh-Ordo (Spirit's Centre) with view of Issyk Kul Lake. We headed back to our hotel at the end of the day with all smiles, thanks to Ash for a wonderful day.
