(Adventure tour in Kyrgyzstan)

Horse riding tour to the Chon-Kemin Valley is an amazing trip that won’t take many days but will give you a huge amount of positive emotions. You can take wonderful photos of the nature of Kyrgyzstan, enjoy its beauty, breathe in the fresh mountain air and feel yourself a nomad covering kilometers on the back of a faithful steed through mountains and valleys.

Chon-Kemin is a unique natural park with many animals and plants listed in the Book of disappearing species. Being not so far from the capital the valley nevertheless managed to preserve its natural landscapes, virgin beauty, and the charm of unpopulated trails with wild animals’ paw prints. The green slopes of the mountains with forests, turbulent rivers carrying their cold waters through the valley, fresh clean air and a pleasant summer breeze blowing over the wanderers - you can compose songs and legends about it and you can become a part of them.
