23.06.2019: Karakol – Jyrgalan

Starting from the guesthouse in Karakol, we road to the entry of the valley of which we had read yesterday. There, we wanted to go and rent a horse for a day before continuing towards Kazakhstan.

She wasn't exactly delighted to see us that early, we however were delighted to be on the road reasonably early. The road to Bishkek at first lead on a curvy road along some river. No villages lay along the road and the tarmac was in good condition so this section was really…
