KYRGYZSTAN

Bishkek-Chon Kemin-Karakol-Son Kul

6 Nights 7 Days

Overview

Kyrgyzstan is a nation defined by its natural beauty. Joyously unspoilt mountains capes, stark craggy ridges and rolling jailoos (summer pastures) are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherds. Add to this a well-developed network of homestays and visa-free travel, and it's easy to see why Kyrgyzstan (officially the Kyrgyz Republic), is the gateway of choice for many travelers in Central Asia.
