This is a good trek to do from Karakol City. Just take marshrutka (mini-bus) #101 to the park gate and start your hike. You will be going straight up the main river until you get to the glacier. Near the glacier (where the GPS track ends) you can find plenty of flat spots that people have created for tents. Note that the final 1.5 hours are quite rough (large boulders, wet grass sections, very unclear trail, no trail, and lots of water). It took me 9 hours. But I think a fast/light trekker could do it in 7-8 hours. NOTE: I'm new to adding waypoints, so I did it manually (zooming in on where I was and dropping a waypoint, so the waypoint may be a little off - but not by too many meters).

    I've done this trek as part of a Karakol - Alakul lake - Ak-Suu hike done in 5 days, 3 nights, about a week ago.

    Thank you for all the helpful details.

    The trail was easy.

    I'd like to explain that the easy part is the trail to Peak Karakol glacier. The rest of it, I mean, going to AlaKul lake and down through Alakul pass is difficult.

    A great trek, and very helpful waypoints. The first day, I followed the trail to a few kms past the track to Ala Kul/Kol (where I think dianaqqq turned off towards the lake), and I agree that this was not too difficult. The second day trekking to the glacier was tougher, particularly with all the scrambling over boulders required towards the end. There was some heavy rain and hail when I did it too, which always adds an extra element of fun! Lots of marmots and weasels in the rocks approaching the glacier :)
