Jeti Oguz sanatorium

Jeti Oguz

Issyk Kul regionKyrgyzstan • 2030 m

The first hydrographic study of the valley was made by N.G. Kassil in 1914. From 1926, in-depth studies were carried out on the composition of the radioactive thermal waters. And in 1931, the construction of the sanatorium began. 

The sanatorium is located in front of the Jeti Oguz (the seven bulls), magnificent red rocks which attract many tourists throughout the year. The sanatorium until today has kept its Soviet style, and you will immediately feel a return to history. The first meeting between the first Kyrgyz president Askar Akaev and Yeltsin took place in this sanatorium. 

The sanatorium had 250 beds, but today part of the complex is abandoned. You can nevertheless receive treatments if you come from a trek in the region, such as a manual massage or with water, taking a bath in the water radonised in a bathtub or in the swimming pool.

You can reach the sanatorium from Karakol by bus no. 371 or by taxi.
