Hello everyone,

Me and a couple of friends are planning a trip in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan in August.
We would like to ask if anyone has done it, also in a small part, and know about these places.
Any feedback can be helpful, especially about roads from Bishkek to Osh along the places we plan to visit.
Thanks in advance

Days
1) arrival in Bishkek
2) Bishkek (rent a car for the next days, to be left in Osh, we read that is something that can be done)
3) move to Issyk-Kul lake
4) Issyk-Kul
5) Issyk-Kul
6) Issyk-Kul to Song-Köl lake
7) Song-Köl to Osh part 1, we plan to stop somewhere in the middle, like arount Toktogoul lake
8) Song-Köl to Osh part 2
9) Osh (leave car)
10) Osh to UZB border -> Andijan to Kokand (by train)
11) Kokand to Samarkand via Tashkent (by train)

I would trade a day in Samarkand (easy) for Khiva (definate - do in a day) and/or Bukhara....a day in Samarkand is more than eneough.

Looks like a great trip!

Hi!
I live in Karakol, Issyk-Kul region and we drive around a lot. I know some places here and could recommend you (just if you have enough time for mountain driving and don't try to see everything at once)
