    The stage from Balyktschy to the Keckek-Bel Pass can be done well in one day from the distance and the elevation meters, but on some days a violent wind blows over the Yssykköl Lake, which can cost a lot of strength. Otherwise, the route is characterized by many lonely, beautifully situated roads, which are interrupted only by very small, rudimentary villages. These usually offer no way to increase stocks, so it is advisable to pack in Balyktschy enough drinking water and food.The people on the way are extremely friendly and most of the time you do not come around for one or the other invitation to a glass of vodka. Just right, at the desert-like temperatures. The last climb to the Keckek-Bel Pass is dead straight and therefore mentally a bit exhausting. Long time you see the target, but you come very slowly closer. But if you are finally on top, you will be rewarded with a magnificent foresight. But beware: In case of bad weather, it is not recommended to camp on the pass.
