Horse riding in Shamsi
(One day trip )

Since ancient times, the horse was the first friend and assistant of man providing him with mobility and speed of movement both in wars and in ordinary life. It is a pity that the horse was replaced with metal because it is very friendly and according to scientists’ communication with it has a positive effect on our body. Many people with psychological problems in the modern world are returning to nature and undergoing rehabilitation with hippotherapy which has recently become increasingly popular.

On this tour you will also have the opportunity to communicate with horses, learn to be friends with these good and strong animals. Kyrgyz horses are amazing: they are very hardy and stable on mountain trails, very careful and at the same time very friendly and accommodating. Even if you have never sat in the saddle before it will not be difficult for you to learn how to do it and an experienced guide will certainly tell and show to you how to deal with your horse.

Plus to what was already said Shamsi Gorge is very beautiful and varied: cattle graze here, people collect medicinal herbs, mow, go for mushrooms to the forest and just come here to relax because it is not only beautiful here but also surprisingly quiet which allows you to clear your mind, forget about problems and enjoy the moment.

So stop sitting at home, it's time to diversify your leisure activities with something new and unusual. Don’t you want to go with us to the mountains? Don’t you want to ride horses? Join now as it is fun and very useful!

One-day horse riding in Shamsi. Gathering at the Asia Mountains hotel and departure from the city at 9 in the morning. Today we will go to the amazingly beautiful Shamsi Gorge which is located just a hundred kilometers from the capital.

On the way we will visit the historical and architectural complex of Burana Tower. The Burana Tower (minaret) is located on the site of an ancient settlement. Historians and archaeologists have proved that the settlement was the capital of the Karakhanid Khanate and was once called Balasagun which was founded in the middle of the 10th century. The Burana Tower now is the central monument of this complex.

After the excursion we will be transferred to Shamsi Gorge where our horses will be waiting for us. We will sit on the horses and will head to the Tuura-Kaiyn gorge. The entire horse ride will take about two hours. Upon arrival to the place we will organize a small picnic after which you will have time to walk through the forest, wander around the surroundings, ride a little more and take a lot of wonderful photos. Return to Bishkek at 17:00 - 18:00.
