Bokonbayevo (Kyrgyz: Бөкөнбаев - Bökönbaev) is the center of the Tong District of the Issyk-Kul Region of Kyrgyzstan. It was established as Kol'tsovka village in 1912. [1] With a population of 10,648 (2009 Population Census)[2] it is the largest village on the south shore of lake Issyk Kul. Its industry has decayed since Soviet times. It is now a base for tourism into the mountains to the south. There are demonstrations of falconry with eagles. The road to the west to Balykchy goes through dry and less-attractive country.
