Tash Rabat, Naryn Province

Must see · Valley · Nature / Park
Feel the risk of the ancient Silk Road trade at Tash Rabat. This 15th century stone caravanserai (or roadside inn) sits at 3,200 m (10,500 ft). Originally built as a Nestorian monastery in the 10th century on the road from Bishkek to Torugart Pass, this sheltered trading stopover has 31 dome-shaped rooms made of crushed stone on clay mortar with gypsum mortar in sealing joints. You'll find on-site camping available with basic facilities and yaks, yurts, nomads some 17 km (10.5 mi) from the end of the paved road. Unmatched starry skies will be your reward if you stay overnight here. PutTash Rabat into our Kara-Suu vacation app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautiful and quiet place where time stood still and it is so easy to fantasize how centuries ago caravans from Asia and Europe arrived here for a peaceful rest. Don’t just limit your visit to visiting the building. Take also a stroll in the valleys around.
  • If you come just for the Caravan Serai you will be disappointed, you see it in 30m max. And is an empty stone building If you come and also get the horse/foot walk to the pass to the lake/Chinese border you will LOVE IT! (You don’t need the permit if you just go to the pass and back) On horse it took like 6 hours
