It will be short ride but we would like to stay a bit longer near the Karakol lake on daylight. You deserve for it and your camera lense as well.  It will be our highest overnightduring the trip. Beautifull place but will be cold during the night. We can camp on the lake shore but maybe it will be wiser to stay inside the warm house. There is no coal and no trees. Wonder what they burn? You will be surprised.
