Photographer's Note

Bokonbayevo village was established as Kol'tsovka in 1912. With a population of 10,648 (2009 Population Census) it is the largest village on the south shore of lake Issyk Kul. Its industry has decayed since Soviet times. rnIt is now a base for tourism into the mountains to the south. There are demonstrations of falconry with eagles. The road to the west to Balykchy goes through dry and less-attractive country.
