The video about Kyrgyzstan became a finalist of the National Geographic competition

In the beginning of October last year, the colorful movie "Lost in Kyrgyzstan" was presented in 4K format by bloggers-travelers Timur Tugalev and Sarah Izzy. A video was filmed on the shores of the Son-Kul and Issyk-Kul lakes, as well as near the Orto-Tokoy reservoir. Later the video was published on the website of the magazine "National Geographic Russia".

On February 28, at a special exhibition organized by National Geographic in London, a finalist of the contest will be announced: in the video category, in addition to the author's project of Tugalev and Izzy, there are two other contenders for the victory - Matt Jarvis short film about the animal world and a similar work by Sam Hipwell about one of the tribes of Southeast Asia.

The original text for the video sounds like this: "From Bishkek, Capital of Kyrgyzstan, to the dreaming sceneries of the lake of Song Köl, from Orto Tokoy, a reservoir of turquoise water in the Kochkor District, up to Issik Kul, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, and Karakol, with its canyons, wild parks and colourful markets. The seams of the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, drawn by a gentle black pencil, the white sand that embrace alpine lakes lashed by the September breeze, create a magnificent sight that leaves you breathless. We hope you enjoy the fascinating landscapes of Kyrgyzstan, a Central Asian gem yet to be discovered",
