Chinghiz Aitmatov at Rukh Ordo, Cholpon Ata
Next morning it was raining in Karakol, and after thinking multiple times I decided to leave Karakol for Cholpon Ata, a town on the shore of Issyk Kul. I wanted to spend a day in Cholpon Ata, packed my bags, hostel owner booked the Yandex taxi for me to drop me at the Karakol Mashrutka stand, said salaam and left the hostel. After 10 minutes drive, taxi driver dropped me at the Karakol Mashrutka stand. A Mashrutka was about to leave for Cholpon Ata, I got into that, 200 som for Karakol to Cholpon Ata.
After 2 hours, the driver dropped me at the Cholpon Ata main Bus station. I did a taxi to reach my hostel in Cholpon Ata. After getting freshen up, went outside to have lunch. In evening I walked to Rukh Ordo and spend some time at the beach seeing the beautiful Issyk Kul Lake.
