Museum of Petroglyphs

Reviewed By Firoz U

Most accessible place to see Petroglyphs

The museum is really just a collection rocks with petroglyphs on, there wasn’t a place to describe exactly what you are seeing or the reasons behind the petroglyphs. Try to get here late evening, just when the sun is shining on the petroglyphs so that the

What an amazing experience. For a small museum, the place is jam-packed with artefacts and memorabilia. Sadly most are in Russian, but we were fortunate to have a military person who happened to visit the museum at the same time, offering to give us expla

Beautiful sports stadium

It's a lovely building with a wonderful view but, with no games in progress, there was not much to see inside. However, when the World Nomad Games begin, this hippodrome can seat 10,000. The big draw during the games is kok-boru (imagine polo played with

It's not really abandoned....

I have been to Cholpon Ata a few times and the airport is not really a place to see. Its very close to the Museum of Petroglyphs in Cholpon Ata. The airport is nothing interesting. Last summer a person could rent jeeps there but I'm not sure if it's still

さびれた公園の中にあります

チョルポンアタのさびれた公園の中にあります。国道沿いなので見つけられましたが、それほど大きい像ではないので見つけにくいかと思います。見落としても全然問題ないですけど。しかし、旧ソ連はこんな田舎にもレーニン像を作るんですねえ。

It's a bit strange to see for the first time

I was guding a tour this last summer and my clients wanted to get out and take a look at this interesting mausoleum. In general it's nothing special and I did not think it was worth a stop but my clients liked it. It's worth a stop to get a good picture o

Not worth a review

That this is the Nº.5 attraction in Cholpon Ata says a lot about the town. I suppose it might be interesting for aviation history buffs and it did feel weird driving along a deserted runway. Apart from that the only reason to go here is that you must trav

Two Days Tour Around Issyk Kul Lake

Watch the snowy peaks from a natural hot water pool

A few kilometers past Cholpon Atta is a turn off to Chudo Voda. After just cca 200 metres off the main road you come to rockpools with natural hot water. Entry costs 200 Som. There are changing rooms and towels can be borrowed for 50 Som. It was lovely to relax in the hot water while gazing at the snowy peaks across the lake. Certainly relieves sore muscles and if that is not enough, massage is available.Suitable for children as the pools are not very deep.
