The Song Kul Lake is located in the southwestern part of the Naryn province, within a basin between the Song Kul Too and Moldo Too mountain ridges, at an altitude of 3016 meters. It is the second largest lake, after Issyk-Kul, with a surface area of 278 km2 and a maximum depth of 14 meters. The lake is fed by several mountain rivers. The spacious meadows around the lake have been used as summer pastures by nomadic shepherds since the ancient times.
