Karakol 

Karakol is a city in Kyrgyzstan on the east of Lake Issyk Kul. Karakol is a true gem in the rough, just awaiting a master jeweler to polish her up. It holds great potential as a future tourism destination, offering year-round trekking, mountaineering, skiing, and spaaing opportunities, set in a picture perfect setting of traditional Russian homes.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust
