    The route up to Checkpoint 1 is in our opinion the most beautiful way to reach Song Kul lake from the north or west but it's also one of the most difficult. To reach the foot of the climb riders leave the main road and head through what riders dubbed the ‘longest village in Kyrgyzstan’. The climb itself is around 10 kilometres at an average gradient of 10%. The last few milometers get so steep though, that walking will be required. Once the summit of Tuz Ashuu is reached it’s not quite a cruise to the checkpoint though with a few short sharp hills along the north shore of the lake to keep things interesting. This section was underestimated by almost everyone last year. It will take longer than expected.
