Chatyr Kul Lake - Kyrgyzstan

This beautiful card is my 1st card from Kyrgyzstan :D It was sent from Taiwan by "mooncastle". The card shows a yurt camp at Chatyr Kul Lake.

Kyrgyzstan is located in Central Asia and is bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the east. Its capital and largest city is Bishkek.

Chatyr-Kul is an endorheic alpine lake in the Tian Shan mountains in At-Bashi District of Naryn Province; it lies in the lower part of Chatyr-Kul Depression near the Torugart Pass border crossing into China. The name of the lake means “Celestial Lake” in Kyrgyz.
