Son Kul is a peaceful lake at the top of a pristine mountain pass where nomadic families – living in their traditional herbs – breed their animals in summer.
The lake is at an altitude of 3016 meters and is enclosed between two mountain ranges. The water of Son Kul is extremely clear and can change in color: from blue to blue on a clear day to purple on a cloudy. The lake is important for shepherds and is also a popular camping site for tourists. Archaeologically, it is also important because of its ancient grave hills and stone monuments. The local community regards the lake as holy and are regularly coming to pray at this place.
