Today, after breakfast, drive about an hour to Burana Tower (old minaret) near Tokmok City. The minaret was built in Balasagun city, it was one of the capitals of the Karakhanid state in the 11-12th century AD. You can also see a collection of balbals, these are ancient Turkish tombstones.
Today you enter the nomadic life at Son Kul Lake. Here the Kyrgyz still live in traditional simplicity. You can hike, spend time with friendly Kyrgyz families, and try fresh airan (yogurt) and kumys (national drink made from fermented mare's milk). And here, too, there is the opportunity to see how a mare is being milked. Dinner and overnight in a yurt camp.
