Karakol Things to Do: 14 reviews and 20 photos

Located a few kilometers from the center of Karakol, and only open on Sundays, the animal bazaar is an interesting place to visit where villagers will often travel for days to sell their animals. I went on a snowy day in December and all the animals, especially majestic horses, amongst the falling snowflakes created a beautiful backdrop to the mountains. The bazaar ends around 10 AM, so get there early for all the action. I recommend you take a local taxi (don’t pay anymore than 20 com), but you can easily walk there from the center in about 30 minutes.
