We will be in Karakol
ith a group of 30 people from the Netherlands, we went to visit Kyrgyzstan. We have seen one of the most beautiful views ever. We went from snow to very empty, beautiful landscapes. We also went to hotsprings, one of the best experiences of our lives. After that we went to a ghost village. Because we took so long at the hotsprings we were a bit late. But we asked Timur if we could see the village from a lot closer and he was very happy to help. We went inside the buildings and it was spectacular.If you’re thinking about going to Kyrgyzstan, please visit Karakol and book the Sary-Jaz tour. Honestly, you won’t regret it.We were a group of students, and we all loved it, which makes me believe that it’s perfect for almost every age category.Thank you Timur and the Visit Karakol Team, we are hoping to come back one day.
