Back into Kyrgyzstan...

From China we returned into Kyrgyzstan and two more yurt camp stopovers. This is Tash Rabat where our camp was near to the ancient caravanserai in the valley.

While it is referred to as a caravanserai it is more likely, based on its design, that it was an early Nestorian monastery. Frankly, who cares - it's spectacular (I seem to have been using that word a lot recently).

Not very many trees! What do these people use to make fires! (dare I ask!) and as everybody seems to have noticed, this scenery is really spectacular!

I'm very curious about the inside of it! Any photos? The other thing that strikes me is that you brought along your incredible "English" clouds to fill the blue sky here as well ! I'm trying to avoid using "spectacular" myself here but it's tough....
