Tour to the south of Issyk-Kul lake
(Eagle hunting, horses and shyrdaks)
Traditions of the Kyrgyz people are lost in big cities, on noisy streets, between tall skyscrapers. However, in the depths of the country far from big cities people respect and honor the customs of their ancestors, follow traditions and try to follow the lifestyle of their ancestors.
If you have already visited the gorges near Bishkek, if you bathed in the hot springs of Issyk-Ata, went to a waterfall in the Ala-Archa National Park and rode horses in the Shamsi Gorge, we suggest that you diversify your leisure time and go for the traditional activities of the Kyrgyz people in the village of Bokonbaevo, where berkutchi live - hunters with falcons and until now teach birds this type of hunting for wild animals; where there is a factory for the manufacture of felt products and where you can ride horses.
In just 260 kilometers from Bishkek, interesting adventures wait for you, where you can participate in the manufacture of shirdaks - national rugs for yurts, take a horse ride to high mountain pastures (jailoo) and where you can see the mighty golden eagles hunting.
A lunch will also be organized for you in a yurt camp on the shore of the lake and you can swim in the evening on the way home, when there is no hot sun and the opportunity to burn your skin.
