Cholpon-Ata

The small city of Cholpon-Ata in Kyrgyzstan is located in the northern Issyk-Kul lakeside, 265 km from Bishkek. This small resort city is famous for its underground sources and mineral waters. Many children’s camps and healthful boards out are located in its territory.

The city’s history begins from the I millennium BC and is connected with the development of the Great Silk Road. Cholpon-Ata is advantageously located between two large waterways, that is why trade caravans often used to stop over there. In course of time the city’s territory was increased by erection of caravanserais.
