After a decent night’s sleep on a springy bunk, which was a change of pace from the brick-hard bed at my apartment, we were all up early. Luckily, so were the people running the camp on the edge of Iskanderkul, so we hustled over to have fried eggs and hot dogs for breakfast. No vodka, surprisingly. We all then headed down to the lakeside to see the view in the morning. It was pretty cool.
Then I turned to my left and took another photo.
According to the guide book, there was a waterfall nearby that the locals called “Niagara” and which was worth checking out. We asked at the camp’s store/restaurant and they pointed us in the right direction, and as we headed into the hills towards the waterfall, I turned around and saw the following view of the approach to Iskanderkul.
Pictures of the “Niagara” waterfall and “Snake Lake,” a pristine pond shrouded in reeds and home to ducks, tomorrow (or the next day).
