Another great half day with Mars. Enjoyable snowy drive. The burial grounds and tower has so much history, def worth a few hours. Although it was bitterly cold, the walk through the statues and stones was fascinating. Climbed to the top of the tower for an amazing 360 view of the mountain range. Would definitely do again to see in the spring and autumn for the amazing foliage.

This is one of the key historical site in the country as the minaret can be traced back to the 11th century. One can climb the minaret from the side as well but the steps are steep.

The ancient city of Balasagun was located at where Burana tower is today. The tower was a part of the minaret of the city's mosque and used to be the highest point. Only the tower remains from the city. Around the tower, there are a few archeological sites but no standing building remains and they are the excavations of the city. The tower can be ascended by the very tiny staircase which is built inside the tower. The view from the top is pretty interesting and gives you the landscape around. The tower is about an hour drive from Bishkek and it is definitely worth a visit.

We have visited Kyrgyzstan a few times, on this occasion we got to take a trip to Burana Tower. It is one of the oldest sites in Kyrgyzstan, and although it is not a massive tourist attraction, it has its impressive history. The site has all things explained on boards in many different languages, the tower you can go to the top, but the steps are very steep, and its best to go up and down on all fours !! unless you’re a young elastic band ! the view is spectacular at the top and this is a view for miles. On the site is an aircon visitors centre staffed, and also a small Yurta gift shop and limited refreshments. There amazing stone images very very old and so great to be able to walk between them. There is a small entry charge, and a very typical toilet, which may prove to be a challenge for many people to use it. The site is in the middle of know where, but there are road signs along the way. You would be advised to work out your route before hand if making your own way. That said the local people are helpful even with a language barrier they will try and help, a pencil and piece of paper would be invaluable for directions!
