Karakol valley Teleti East

Snowy River

Issyk Kul regionKyrgyzstan • 2625 m

The junction between the Karakol valley and the Teleti gorge. 

In the Karakol National Park, the landscape is very alpine, rocky and covered with forests. There are good places to pitch your tent, but be careful not to do too close to the rivers. Heavy rains at the end of the day, and the rivers overflowing. 

From here you can reach Teleti Pass, or On Tor pass, or Ala-Kul Lake, or simply walk down till Karakol. In winter, the place is also accessible on horseback, and allows to practice ski touring.
