The Köl-Kögür Lake

Lake Kel-Kogur is one of the most beautiful, but unfairly deprived of popularity water attractions in Kyrgyzstan and the northern Tien Shan. The lake is surrounded by a picturesque mountain landscape, wooded areas and gentle slopes, looking at which you involuntarily think about the reality of what you see: these views are so breathtaking. Lake Kel-Kogur is part of the water system of the Chon-Kemin River and you can get to it through its valley. Places in the area of the lake are practically untouched by man, on the way to it there are several settlements, as well as cattle-breeding temporary huts and a huntsman's house. The fact that travelers do not get to the lake so often contributes to the preservation of the surrounding nature in its original form and makes these places very clean, practically not polluted with garbage. The shores of the lake are different from each other: so, if one of them can be seen spruce thickets, the opposite is the slope of the mountain, which is called Kol-Kogur: just like the lake.
