English summary: Uybulaq Pass was a no brainer, and after that a long downhill to Karakol Lake. I was counting on getting water from the lake, but I’m a bit concerned about the fact that the lake isn’t fresh water. It is slightly salty…filtered some anyway, and I guess I’ll find out soon enough if it is a bad idea to drink it.

Agree with Aunty Lyn – looks very like MacKenzie country, although maybe a bit more barren looking. Why is Karakol salty? Evaporation? No regular run in and out of water?

Aunty Les, you are right. No outflow from Karakol Lake.
