The next morning we are going to take a small walk in the lovely Chon Kemin valley. On the way, we are going to stop in Burana Tower. Dubbed a minaret, now it is more probably a watchtower. Built by the Karakhanids (“black Huns”) in the 9th century, it once stood 44m high but an earthquake reduced it to its current 25m. The tower is all that remains of Balasagun, which, at least according to Peter Frankopan’s The Silk Roads, was once believed to be the center of the world. Next to Burana Tower, we are going to find balbals that are gravestones, that was collected from some parts of Kyrgyzstan. And you are also welcome to the museum where you can see excavations that were found in area of Balasagun. After visiting Burana Tower we are going to drive to Chon-Kemin valley and have short walking there. Have lunch and come back to Bishkek.
