CBT Son Kul Mahabat

Location and atmosphere
Mahabat and family come up to Son Kul every year, like many others. Their animals are able to eat high quality grass, while the family is welcoming tourists. 2 sons and a daughter follow in July, when the weather is more stable, to help with farm work but also to communicate with tourists.
Mahabat has 4 Yurts in which 25 tourists can comfortably sleep on cozy matresses on the ground. A seperate dining room is close to the Yurts. A short walk away, the toilett is situated with a beautiful mountain view. Horses and other animals are likely to pass your way.
Surroundings and activities
Son Kul is one of the pearls of Kyrgyzstan. During the summer season many farmers take their animals to feed on the good grass and put up Yurts close to the shore of Son Kul lake. Possibilities for walks and horseriding around the lake are numerous.
