Kyrgyzstan is quite simply one of the most beautiful countries on earth. The Tien Shan or “Mountains of Heaven” that stretch€ross its length and breadth are lush and green, high and wild and are dissected by sweeping steppe lands, primal forests, crystal streams and turquoise lakes. And far away, scratching the belly of the endless sky is a never-changing vista of lofty snow-capped peaks. With 90% of the country lying above 1500m this is very much a destination for lovers of epic mountain scenery and this new comprehensive “Kyrgyzstan only” trip has been a long time coming and seeks to do justice to one of our favourite countries.
From the beautiful alpine scenery of Sary Chelek and the ancient walnut forests of Arslanbob to the dramatic Silk Road valley of Tash Rabat and the endless grasslands that surround Son Kul, we’ll not only be endlessly awed by the stunning landscapes of the “Switzerland of Central Asia” but in addition we’ll meet the nomads who call this land home and who are amongst the most welcoming people on the planet.
