Yurts Along Song Kul Lake, Kyrgyzstan

Yurts Along Song Kul Lake, Kyrgyzstan

The area around Song Kul Lake is prime grazing land for horses, sheep, goats, cows, and donkeys (and any other grazing animal you can think of). In the summer season, the pastures are sprawled with yurts. By the time we arrived at the end September, only a few yurts remained, hinting at the coming darkness and desolation of winter.
