Song-Kul Lake is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan, situated at an altitude of 3013 m. above sea level. Surrounded by dramatic snow-covered mountain peaks, it is hidden in a flat, plate-like valley. It appears to lie under the sky itself and it feels as if you can touch the stars themselves. In a matter of weeks here it is possible to experience the rotation of the four seasons. Edelweiss, a mountain flower, grows in abundance here.
