Now in Kyrgyzstan at Tuzbel Pass in the Ak Say valley at 11730 feet

After crossing the border there is a magnificent high level run across a landlocked plateau forming the valley.
The Kyrgyz border control is some way from the frontier; our passports and visas were checked but the customs office was closed for lunch.
This contrasted strongly with leaving China where we were seen by a medic and had to show any books we had to a custom officer.
