Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a small country located in Central Asia, known for its rich diversity of landscapes that are often compared to the scenery of Iceland, Switzerland, and Canada. Nestled in the heart of the majestic Tien Shan mountain range, Kyrgyzstan boasts breathtaking mountain peaks, pristine alpine lakes, sprawling meadows, and lush valleys.
Tourists often return to Kyrgyzstan in different seasons because each visit brings new discoveries. Here you will witness:
  • Mountains with glaciers and peaks reaching over 7,000 meters, their slopes covered in lush greenery during warm months and fluffy snow in winter.
  • Meadows and fields adorned with alpine flowers and relic trees, bearing witness to ancient tales.
  • Enchanting orange canyons, shrouded in mystery.
  • Caves adorned with limestone stalactites.
  • Cheese mountains with whimsical contours.
  • The abundance of rivers teeming with mountain trout.
  • Thundering waterfalls.
  • Lakes of astonishing colors, ranging from delicate blue to deep turquoise due to minerals and salts.
  • The Dead Sea, a salt lake with healing clay, attracting pilgrims from around the world.
  • Submerged settlements of Lake Issyk-Kul, one of the deepest lakes in the world.
  • Sacred sites with mystical signs and symbols.
  • Petroglyphs of Saimaluu-Tash, depict the lifestyle of nomadic tribes in great detail.
  • Ancient cities with millennium-old legends.
  • Vast protected areas.
  • Sacred pilgrimage sites.
  • Spacious pastures for domesticated livestock and semi-wild yaks.
  • Canyons and valleys dotted with yurts, the dwellings of the descendants of nomadic people, from early spring to late autumn.
Visitors to the country particularly highlight the traditional Kyrgyz hospitality, which is deeply ingrained in the culture and passed down from generation to generation. It is a customary practice to warmly welcome and offer refreshments, homemade delicacies, and a place to rest to any traveler.

Tourists definitely take the opportunity to embark on gastronomic tours in Kyrgyzstan, as the national cuisine deserves special mention. Just imagine the juicy dishes prepared from locally grown vegetables and fruits, harvested from gardens and orchards. The aromatic meat from domestic livestock and/or wild animals (only during the hunting season!) grazed on the richly herb-covered green slopes, or the rainbow trout with a crispy crust. And let's not forget about the water! Pure, spring water that tastes so delicious.
Moreover, hot dishes are always cooked over an open fire - in a cauldron, on a grill, or on a bonfire. And yes, the teas are so diverse - floral or milky, brewed in a bubbling samovar.

By the way, here you can taste tea with freshly milked milk, prepared according to the recipe of the nomadic tribes - with a touch of pepper, salt, and a pinch of roasted flour. And an important part of the experience is that everything is served in a family-like atmosphere, with the hostess of the table extending a bowl to you with both hands in the traditional manner - the hand holding the bowl should be slightly bent and supported by the other hand under the elbow - symbolizing openness, kindness, and sincere hospitality.

Come for the first time, savor, and enjoy, so that you can easily return whenever you miss it, just like our longtime friends do.

My name is Aidana and I love Kyrgyzstan. I started working as a guide in 2018 and fell in love with tourism. I will be glad to organize you on a tour where you can see the life of local people, taste Kyrgyz food and have a good time in Kyrgyzstan. These tours are for people who want to see the real Kyrgyzstan and gain knowledge on how to cook Kyrgyz food, as well as get to know the traditions and culture. In addition, our tours are designed for people who really enjoy pure nature and flowers (for example, you can see Edelweiss on Son-Kul).
