During your tour of Kyrgyzstan you’ll visit the blue Issyk Kul Lake, surrounded by snowy mountaintops and boasting fantastic views. This lake is one of the biggest mountain lakes in the world. You’ll also come across the tents of the nomads. The hospitable and friendly population might offer you a glass of kümüz, fermented horse milk. It is polite to at least try a sip. The women of Kochkor craft the most beautiful tapestries at home and are happy to show them to you.
The tours of Kyrgyzstan will also introduce you to the Russian influences that are still visible, though Kyrgyzstan proclaimed its independence in 1991. You’ll find the Russian way of building cities apparent in Bishkek, where huge statues of the old Soviet leaders can be found in almost every square.
During your Kyrgyzstan travels, a visit of the balbals at the Burana minaret is not to be missed. These historical gravestones weigh hundreds of kilos and it is still a miracle how these stones came to here.
The tours of Kyrgyzstan will surprise you with the sheer beauty of the country and you’ll be sure to be one of the first travellers to discover this impressive country.
