We left our hotel for a drive to the Walnut forest. It was our day leading today. The departure at 8am allowed us to see many herds of horses, cows and sheep being driven down the road.
We drove by two reservoirs which were beautiful and the morning tea was at a scenic spot that we found on a lake foreshore.
The scenery again was magical and the camera clicked continually.
We motored on to Arslanbob where we stayed in Guest houses (home stay accommodation) The group divided themselves into two and we stayed across the road from each other.
We caught a small truck to the entrance and walked to the waterfall. When we asked to walk through the Walnut forest…we were told that we were in it.
However…we did climb the hill a bit more from the falls and walked among the walnut trees. Alexander the Great is reputed to have visited this area and taken walnuts back to Macedonia.
Lovely family run accommodation and the three young boys of the owner loved their small koalas we gave them.
Once again, a very scenic day. We will miss the beauty of Kyrgystan as we cross to Uzbekistan tomorrow. This country’s scenery was magical!
