Karakul is a small village on the Pamir Highway surrounded by a large Crater lake. It sits on a desolate high plain. If you are coming from Kyrgystan beware of possible Altitude Sickness.

There is a rest house for truckers that will serve a hardy dinner, its cheap but don't go expecting it to be pristine clean.

Understand[edit]

The people who live in Karakul are primarily ethnic Kyrgyz. No one speaks English here, so basic Russian or Kyrgyz is advisable.
