The jai-loo (summer pastures)

In Kyrgyzstan for around a week now wild camping by lakes, and hanging out with some shepherds on the jai-loo (summer pastures) around Song Kul lake, at over 3,000m. The Kyrgyz are traditionally very good horsemen and the grasslands around Song Kul are filled with thousands of horses that are used for a variety of means. One of their uses is to help round up the cattle and sheep that the shepherds manage high up in the mountains.
