Short description: The unique climate of Issyk-Kul and its surroundings, which combines the peculiarities of both mountainous and maritime, is conditioned by the presence of a giant, natural accumulator – Lake Issyk-Kul. Where else in the northern latitudes of the world can you get such a combination: hot sun, the scent of coniferous forests and the refreshing coolness of a sea breeze. Journey along the Terskey where the air itself is salubrious – it is an excellent opportunity to rejuvenate yourself and collect some unforgettable impressions.
