Chui Oblast Tokmok and Kara Balta, Kyrgyzstan
Days trips from Bishkek.
Tokmok was close by and on our way to Issyk Kul and Naryn. Tokmok is well known for the Burana Tower, an ancient minaret.
Not much I remember about these two trips. They were too close to Bishkek. In Kara Balta, I remember that we hurried to make it back to Bishkek before it got dark.
