By car across Kyrgyzstan
(4x4 adventure in the country of Celestial Mountains)
Kyrgyzstan is a country of crystal clear rivers and lakes, high mountain ranges with snow peaks, clean mountain air and amazing untouched nature. The mountains are everywhere and they are so attractive in their diversity. Gentle hills rise from the plain and smoothly turn into erecting giants with snow caps on their heads; that is why Kyrgyzstan is rightly called the country of the Celestial Mountains. Kyrgyzstan is a hospitable country where many people still lead a nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyle, dominated by cattle breeding and handicrafts. What Kyrgyzstan lacks in an established history, it fills with a variety of nomadic traditions and mountain paradise, that is ideal for hiking and camping. Horse riding tours and hiking trips, geological and speleological expeditions, mountain cycling and mountaineering are popular here, but in this tour we suggest you to drive along the mountain roads of Kyrgyzstan, try your driving skills and get unforgettable impressions of high mountain passes, wide valleys, mountain lakes, magnificent views and panoramas.
You will discover the whole country and its most interesting places - places where the neighboring houses are located a few kilometers from each other, where it is possible to see wild animals and yaks, which seem to be grazing completely unattended. Yet on these open spaces here and there grow up like mushrooms, nomads living in the yurts pay tribute to their ancestors and continue the traditions of their fathers, leave their homes each summer and go up high in the mountains leading cattle to high-mountain pastures.
3000 km of roads; Bishkek, Cholpon-Ata, Karakol and Naryn; famous Chui valley and Issyk-Kul lake; large lakes of Kyrgyzstan, located at an altitude of more than 3000m above sea level, which can only be reached in the summer months; the real Tash-Rabat fortress and the Burana tower built in the 10th century; hospitable Kyrgyz people and of course amazing, unique, unusual and diverse nature!
All this is waiting for you here, all this is waiting for you in Kyrgyzstan!
