At this point we could drive into the Wakhan Corridor (South), in Afghanistan.... Depending upon how the time permits, we could explore around The great inland lake of Issyk Kul, is an endorheic lake in the northern Tian Shan mountains in eastern Kyrgyzstan. The last part of the journey takes us back across Kazakhstan, to see The Baikonur , Aralysk and into Moldova and the Ukraine.
