Sarala-Saz Jailoo (pasture)
date: 2020-02-09
Jailoo Sarala-Saz is an alpine pasture, located 60 km to the north west of the village of Kochkor. It is situated at the altitude of over 3000 m. The name translates from Kyrgyz as "the yellowish swamp". It received its name due to its characteristic color of grass growing there and practically complete absence of shrubs and trees around. Near the jailoo there are several interesting tourist sites: the ancient burial mounds dated back to the 4th century, the gallery of petroglyphs and the mysterious waterfall hidden among the rocks, which is called "Find Me". Every August the festival of national games is held in the meadows of Sarala-Saz.
