lake song kol, kyrgyzstan:

After our felt demonstration, we were off, heading for Lake Song Kol where we would be spending two nights staying with Kyrgyz nomads - in a yurt. I was beyond excited, as it has always been a dream of mine to stay in a yurt.
During the summer months, Kyrgyz herders take their livestock to higher ground up in the mountains where the grass is lush and good for feeding their animals - setting up yurts for their families and for visitors to come and stay.
Lake Song Kol was probably the highlight of our time Kyrgyzstan, it was just breathtaking - and the exact yurt experience I was always hoping for. We were not only surround by the most beautiful scenery, but by lots of animals, roaming around freely. In particular, there were lots of horses which just added to whole picture-esque experience.

More photos from Song Kol to come!
