Lake Issyk-Kul northern shore 3 mls west of Cholponata At least as nice as Lago Maggiore (and 30 times larger) except quality of Hotels. But standards are improving very fast due to Kazakh tourists from Almaty.Almaty is located in 65mls distance north of lake Issyk-Kul. Rich tourists from Almaty are coming by plane just for weekends in order to escape summer heat. I have been told that you can see in winter snow leopards not too far away from village
