PIC1 Balykchy, Kyrgyzstan - There should be plenty of water at the town of Balykchy, where property prices are booming for some. But the faces of the elderly at the local community centre look crestfallen. Balykchy lies at the western tip of Lake Issyk-Kul. It has a sublimely beautiful piece of water in Central Asia that meshes with frequent banks of parched landscape to create a soft atmosphere in the summer heat.
I am interested in taking the train from Bishkek to Balykchy on August 14th Does anybody have any details of the what time it leaves and how likely it is to be full? I found some information from a few years ago stating the train departed at I am landing at Manas airport at Will this give me enough time if I go by taxi to make this connection?
