Son-Kul is a mountain lake of Tien Shan. One version of the translation of the name sounds like “Last Lake”.

Son-Kul is the second largest lake in Kyrgyzstan, located at an altitude of 3016 meters above sea level, 29 km long and 18 km wide. The maximum depth of the lake is 13.2 meters. The average water temperature is -3.5 ° C, and in summer the water warms up to 11 ° C. The temperature of the lake in winter drops to -20 ° C. 200 days a year, the lake is covered with snow and in winter it is almost impossible to climb to it. Unlike Issyk-Kul, Son-Kul freezes and is covered with ice from September to April. The lake lies on a mountain plain surrounded by meadows (jailoo). Meadows are used as pasture for animals from the most ancient times, as evidenced by the rock paintings found on the shore of the lake. Shepherds bring livestock to the lake for the summer and families live in yurts (the traditional dwelling of the Kyrgyz from felt). Four roads lead to the lake. One through Sary-Bulak in the northeast, the second lies through the serpentine road in the southeast, the third runs through Ak-Tal in the south-west and the fourth passes by the coal mines of Kara-Keche in the north-west.


The resort, Altyn-Arashan gorge (Golden Spring) is located in the upper reaches of the valley of the Arashan river of the same name, it is located 10 km east of Karakol and 28 km off the east coast of Issyk-Kul lake.

Water sources contains radon and is used in the treatment of diseases of the nervous system.

Outside the village Ak-Suu gorge expands. The left slope is densely covered with spruce forest. Arashan gorge is very picturesque. At an altitude of 2600 m, in a wide valley with spruce forest, green meadows and fragrant flowers, on the right bank of the river, there is a small resort “Altyn-Arashan” (Golden Source).
