Accommodation rating: Basic
A yurt is the home of the nomads of Central Asia. One of its special features is its round shape, which not only provides optimal wind resistance but also peace and security.
The individual components are made exclusively from high-quality, natural raw materials. The base material is wood, the concertina is soffit, and roof poles are made of wood.
The floor is just like the yurt walls and roof, insulated by felt as in the old tradition. The door of the yurt is covered with felt and decorated with typical Kyrgyz ornaments. There are no beds, just mattresses, and no chairs, just matting, so you can live like the nomads; however, there will be enough provided to sleep and sit in relative comfort.
The yurt village in the Bokonbaevo is located in close proximity to the legendary Issyk-Kul lake. Issyk-Kul is the second-largest lake in the world and is situated at an elevation of 1600 metres above sea level and is 182km long and 200 metres (668 ft) deep. The water is slightly saline and therefore does not freeze in winter; it is surrounded on all sides by high mountains.
Features: 6-10 yurts.
Yurt facilities: Washbasin, outside shower, solar and electric heated water, bio-toilets.
