Annual winter expedition to Son Kul 2023

Our annual winter expedition trip has recently ended. Our group came from Spain to spend 5 days on the frozen lake Son Kul, sleeping in tents and warm yurts (the national nomadic mobile home).

Son-Kul is located in the northwestern part of the Naryn region, at an altitude of 3016 meters above sea level. The lake is the second largest and the first natural reservoir in Kyrgyzstan in terms of freshwater reserves. The lake is 28 km long and 18 km wide, and its greatest depth reaches 22 meters.

This region is very cold in winter, snowy and with a lot of precipitation. This makes the lake inaccessible, as at this time all roads leading to the lake are closed and the lake itself is covered by a heavy layer of ice.

The group reached the lake by skiing and horseback and overcame all the natural difficulties and challenges. Good job, we are proud of all of them!

Do you like winter activities, so do we!
