Getting There & Away

Cut by the main Bishkek–Osh highway, all major north–south transport runs through the Suusamyr Valley. Getting off the highway and into the three major villages to the east is a different story – look for shared taxis from Bishkek or try your luck at hiring a car from the junction. With your own wheels or a hired car, it's also possible to continue past Kyzyl-Oi on the back road into Jumgal and on to Son-Köl.
