The tour leader’s role should never be confused with that of a tour guide. No specific knowledge about monuments, museums, or other places of tourist interest is required of the tour leader.

Join us on this cultural journey to Kyrgyzstan, a small country located in Central Asia, near the magnificent Tien Shan mountain range, also known as the “Celestial Mountains.”

Kyrgyzstan is characterized by its alpine landscape of dramatic mountains with unique shapes and textures, as well as its mountain ranges, glacial lakes, and nomadic peoples who inhabit the region.

With 80% of its territory being mountainous and a low population density, it is a land of untouched nature, with vast expanses as far as the eye can see—a guaranteed escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

As an essential stop on the Silk Road, Kyrgyzstan has long welcomed travelers from diverse backgrounds and today presents itself as a multicultural society to which a multitude of ethnic groups call home. Therefore, its culture is diverse and rich, as you will have the opportunity to witness.

The itinerary of this journey combines landscape and culture to introduce you to the best that Kyrgyzstan has to offer. You will have the opportunity to see and photograph the beautiful and remote landscapes of Central Asia, unreal rock formations, the Tash Rabat Caravanserai, as well as the Son-Kul and Issyk Kul lakes, staying in hotels and yurt camps.

We will also witness a game of “Kok Boru,” originating from Afghanistan and popular among the nomadic peoples of Central Asia, where participants demonstrate their equestrian skills.

You will bring back magnificent memories and records of this Land of Superlatives, where nature reigns in all its splendor.
