Koshkol' (Kyrgyz: Кошкөл; Russian: Кош-Кол or Кош-Коль) is a village in the Issyk-Kul Region of Kyrgyzstan. The village name has also been transliterated as Kosh-Kël' or Kosh-Kel'. Its population was 384 in 2009.
It is located in the Issyk Kul District of this province, near the northern shore of Lake Issyk Kul between Balykchy and Cholpon-Ata. The village includes two built-up areas. First, the actual residential village, located along the Balykchy-Cholpon-Ata-Karakol highway, as it cuts across the base of a Koshkol promontory jutting into Lake Issyk Kul; this section is within a couple kilometers away from the lake shore. Second, the name Koshkol' is also applied to the resort strip to the south of the village, on the south-eastern shore of the peninsula. Most of the resort buildings there are decidedly Soviet-era; as of 2007, some of them appeared abandoned, while others received visitors.
