15 Things to do in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan Travel Guide video transcript:
Hey guys this week we are in Karakol, Kyrgyzstan. Yeah, so Karakol (Каракол) is a place that we've actually visited last year but we were only here on a day trip so we didn't get to see a whole lot. Right and this is basically the adventure capital of Kyrgyzstan. There is a lot of good hiking, you can take boat trips. So we're just going to show you like what you can do in and around this area. Let's
Our first stop was the Dungan Mosque. This mosque is unique because architecturally it looks a lot like a Buddhist temple; this is because it was built by the Dungan community, an ethnically Chinese people group who follow Islam.
Another iconic place of worship in Karakol (Каракол) is the Holy Trinity Russian Orthodox Church. This is a traditional Russian wooden cathedral complete with onion domes.
We also squeezed in a quick visit to Karakol’s History Museum, which has a rather fascinating taxidermy collection.
Okay so it is dinner time here in Karakol (قاراقول) and the sun has gone down and today we are going to be doing a traditional meal with a family.
So we're going to be preparing Ashlyanfu (Ашлян-фу) which is a cold noodle starch soup and then we're going to go into their home and have a nice family dinner together.
And because we love our food, we also took a cooking class where we learned to make a traditional Uyghur dish: laghman (Лагман).
As far as day trips go, one nearby attraction from Karakol (Каракол) is Jeti Oguz known for its red hills. It’s about a 30 minute drive and you can easily hire a driver to take you out there.
Last but not least, one of the most popular things to do in Karakol (Каракол) is hiking. This is considered the adventure capital of Kyrgyzstan (Киргизия) with many hikes and horse treks starting right in town.
And that’s a little taste of what Karakol and the surrounding area has to offer visitors. We hope you enjoyed this travel guide and that it gave you a few ideas of things to do in Karakol (Каракол).
This is part of our Travel in Kyrgyzstan video series showcasing Kyrgyz food, Kyrgyz culture and Kyrgyz cuisine.

Expedition Asia Vlog: Episode 6 - Karakol River
Kyrgyzstan turned out to be incredible for boating, but that's probably what we should have expected from a place that is 70% mountains. After a nice night at Nurdoolot Guest House in Karakol, we packed up and headed for the river. The Karakol drains a vast area of mountains in a national park who's peaks reach upwards of 5000m along the border with China. We did a lot of exploring today, and talked with a lot of folks living along the river. Everyone was curious who these crazy people were and what they were doing here. We did have one injury on the trip which lingered over the team for the rest of our time in Central Asia, but that comes with the territory on expedition trips.

Ski base «Karakol»
Mountain-skiing base Karakol is a unique ski resort in its natural conditions. The base is located at an altitude of 2300 meters above sea level, on the slopes of the Tien Shan, among the majestic coniferous forests.
A mild climate, due to the influence of the ice-free highland lake Issyk-Kul, will allow you to get the most pleasure from skiing. In winter, the air temperature during the day rarely drops below -5 degrees, and a large number of sunny days allows you to skate and sunbathe simultaneously. The ski season starts in November and lasts until April.
