Full Tour Details:

Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan provides the starting point for our journey and an ideal introduction to the country. After a tour of the capital and a visit to the state history museum we travel to Kochkor where we spend the night in bed and breakfast accommodation provided by a local family. The next morning we travel to Kuzart to start our 5 day horse trek. We follow the Bazar-Turuk river up to Kilemche mountain pasture where we spend the night in yurts. The next day we continue south to our second yurt camp on the north shore of Lake Song-Kul - a pristine nature reserve on a plateau at 3000m altitude, inaccessible for much of the year because of the winter snow and surrounded by mountains. Many Kyrgyz bring their animals here in the summer and set up temporary homes in yurts. You will get a real feel for the life of the nomadic shepherds and be amazed by the scenery and tranquility of this special place. On the third day we will ride around the western side of the lake to a yurt camp on the southern shore. There will be time for some optional short hikes into the surrounding mountains to stretch your legs after the horse riding. The final two days we will continue south through the mountains of the Central Tien Shan range, finishing at the banks of the Naryn river, Kyrgyzstanís most important water resource. As we descend the mountain plateau is replaced by forest and spectacular views south over the Naryn river valley. From here we will travel by vehicle to Naryn and stay one night in a guest house before returning to Bishkek.
