Kyrgyzstan - Tash Rabat Caravansarai

Yurt camp at the TAsh Rabat caravansarai.

Sent by Aysuluu from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

This is from Wikipedia : Tash Rabat is a well-preserved 15th century stone caravanserai in At Bashy district, Naryn Province, Kyrgyzstan. Some argue that it was originally a Nestorian or Buddhist monastery going back to the tenth century. It is located somewhat east of the main north-south highway.

To the south is Lake Chatyr-Kul and Torugart Pass. To the north is Koshoy Korgon, a ruined fortress of uncertain date. The area is a center for hiking and horse-trekking.
