Adventure holidays to Kyrgyzstan
Adventure travellers come to Kyrgyzstan for the outstanding scenery, but they stay for the fascinating culture, tradition and friendly hospitality. Kyrgyzstan is the gateway to Central Asia and starts many a traveller on a love affair with the region, which is still very under-visited and far off the beaten track.
Be ready to get high up in the mountains for beautiful vistas, craggy peaks, glaciers and alpine lakes. The landscape is dotted with yurts, home to nomadic shepherds who may invite you in for a five course meal. Your guide will help you negotiate as you learn more about these warm and welcoming people. Meet the famous Golden Eagle hunters and learn about the Kyrgyz way of life.
"Waking up at 10,000 feet by the shores of Son Kul lake in a cosy yurt feels special. But pull back the door and just see the emptiness dotted with horses and sheep, encircled by mountains, makes you feel very privileged." Richard Gibbon, Celestial Adventure, 2016
The best time to visit Kyrgyzstan depends is between July and September, when weather is ideal for trekking but cities are warm. In May and June spring brings beautiful flowers but the mountains may still be snowbound.
