Some of my friends asked me before why I wanted to visit Kyrgyzstan. I guess mostly because of its traditional shepherd lifestyle.
Although in early May it isn’t the best time to visit the country, as it is still not warm enough to see the yurts everywhere. Still I was lucky enough to encounter some shepherd family in a remote lake, Köl-Suu, which is also the reason why I came all the way from Osh to Naryn.
Yes, I stayed in this old railway wagon made house for the night.
When we arrived, it’s already 11 pm. Luckily the driver knows a shepherd family living near the lake. Our original plan is to stay in the yurt, but at this time, they haven’t set up their yurt yet. The host lady was preparing the heating.
We were invited for a tea even this late. So I could take a look at the village life in Kyrgyzstan. I was kinda worried if we would wake up the two kids who were sleeping, luckily they slept soundly enough.
The surrounding of their farm and houses. It feels so nice to live in the middle of the pure nature like this.
The next day when kids are awake, I could play with them a bit.
The region is so remote that there isn’t any mobile signal. They do have a compatible small TV that can connect with the satelite. Besides the TV is the battery that is charged with solar energy.
