Explore the mountains of Central Asia in Kyrgyzstan, located at the juncture of two great Central Asian mountain systems: the Tian Shan and the Pamirs. The Fergana Valley in the west and the Chu Valley in the north are among the few significant lowland areas in Kyrgyzstan. Encircled with high mountains, Issyk-Kul Lake is amongst the largest lakes in the world. About 134 rivers flow into the lake, but no rivers flow out of the Issyk-Kul. The Kyrgyz people are renowned for their hospitality and this country is opening its arms to encourage adventure travel. Our trips are designed to show the traditional ways of life of these hard mountain people and we will even get to stay in traditional yurts.
