There is a train line from Bishkek to Balykchy, on Lake Issyk-Kul, in Kyrgyzstan.
The train leaves Bishkek at 6.40am, and takes around 4 hours. This is slower than minibuses or shared taxis, which I took from Bishkek TO the lake, but it's meant to be a really nice train trip, and I'd like to take it back on Sunday.
However, not being in Balykchy myself, I can't find the timetable for the return train - aside from 'in the afternoon' (which I'm assuming because we passed a train going in the other direction while in the minibus today).
If someone can find the timetable, I'd be highly appreciative!
