Kyrgyzstan adventure 17-22 September
Adventure with us on the rugged beauty of Kyrgyzstan, where adventure awaits at every turn amidst stunning natural landscapes and ancient traditions, with a group of like-minded explorers, all with one and the same mission: truly explore.
Can also be combined with our Uzbekistan Group Adventure!
What will we experience?
Embark on an unforgettable adventure to Chong Kemin National Park, a stunning natural zone spanning fifty kilometers along the picturesque Chong Kemin River valley. Here, you'll discover an array of rare and exotic flora and fauna, including glaciers along with forested areas and vast steppe landscapes
Experience the time-honored tradition of the Eagle hunters of Kyrgyzstan. You will get to witness first hand their skill and synchronicity between human and animal - a form of hunting that they have practiced for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Us showing interest in the form of tourism is what helps keep this side of their heritage and traditions alive.
Take the scenic route to Ysyk-Kol, a mesmerizing high mountain lake and the second largest lake in the world after Titicaca in the Andes. Believed to be the "hot lake" in Kyrgyz due to its never-freezing waters. Now, "hot" might be a stretch, but you will get to test that yourself with a dip!
Go on a wild-camping trip (2 days, 1 night) to one of the most scenic routes in Kyrgyzstan and be swept away by the magic of the serene natural surroundings at Ala-Kul lake.
P.S. Kyrgyzstan is one of a few countries left on earth where wild camping is legally allowed. Use it while you still can!
These are just a few of the highlights on our trip, but the journey itself is an adventure: on your journey back to Bishkek, you will be passing through the captivating city of Cholpon-Ata - the very same location where the World Nomad Games were held.
