Tamga bound

A couple of friends and I leave Friday for a few days at guesthouse in Tamga on the south shore of Lake Issy Kul, Kyrgyzstan’s inland sea and, at 1,608 meters in elevation, the second largest mountain lake in the world. Tamga is at the mouth of the Barksoon Valley, which has several waterfalls as well as Tamga Tash, an ancient rock carved with Tibetan Buddhist inscriptions, yet another indication of Central Asia's role as a cultural crossroads.
