Kyrgyzstan vacations 2020 & 2021
Green, mountainous and lake-strewn, Kyrgyzstan is sandwiched between deserts and scorched plains. It’s remarkably untouched in feel, certainly when compared with showier, next-door Uzbekistan. Our specialists have traversed its landscapes by road and on foot, and they’ll draw on this knowledge to plan your visit.
They can suggest experiences for your vacation to Kyrgyzstan that will give you a vivid sense of the Kyrgyz people’s hospitality and traditional nomadic lifestyle. You could stay in a family-run yurt camp in an alpine meadow or on the banks of azure-bright Lake Song Kol: our specialists have tried and tested various options. Then, if you’re looking to incorporate hiking into your trip to Kyrgyzstan, they’ll advise on the best trails — you could trek past glaciers, or through wildflower-dotted valleys. And, they’ll help you take in quintessential Kyrgyz sights, from the petroglyphs around Lake Issyk Kul to the stone caravanserai of Tash Rabat.
