(4x4 self-driving program )
Kyrgyzstan is an extraordinarily beautiful country located at the junction of the two great mountain systems of the Tien Shan and Pamir. Its wealth is mountains with a great number of untrodden paths, unconquered peaks and wild mountain expanses, where you can meet ibex, marco-polo and even snow leopard, for which every year international expeditions are organized. In the summer months Kyrgyzstan is full of tourists; thousands of people from different countries come to see this colorful country, Lake Issyk-Kul, lost medieval settlements, raging rivers of amazing beauty, rushing down from the rocks in fast noisy waterfalls; they come to experience the charm of a measured nomadic life, spend the night in a yurt with an open canopy and an opportunity to watch myriads of stars, which look like fireflies frozen on the dark velvet of the night sky.
People in Kyrgyzstan are openhearted, friendly and hospitable. In every yurt on your drive along mountain roads, you will find a piece of bread with hot tea or a glass of koumiss (the national Kyrgyz drink). More and more people are trying to revive the traditions of thie amazing and great nation, and almost every village has its own masters in felting, wood, stone and bone carving, in the manufacture of national instruments, national household items, such as beshik (children's cradles) or the wooden frame of the yurt. Over time, customs, national games, and culinary skills are also being revived.
On this exciting journey, you will be able to drive along the roads through the Tien Shan mountain ranges, visit the families of local residents, taste national dishes, participate in master classes and folklore shows, take a horseback ride, spend the night in a real yurt, sail on a yacht on the waves of the immense Issyk-Kul lake and enjoy leisurely walks in the fresh air. If you crave for new impressions, a surge of energy, the WOW effect and new discoveries, then you should definitely join our group. The mountains of Kyrgyzstan have already spread their arms to hug you and give you a feeling of the power of the universe and its great gift to surprise and win our hearts.
