About Kyrgyzstan Tour
Many people go to the mountains in Kyrgyzstan which makes sense because 94% of Kyrgyzstan is in the mountains. The massive Tian Shan covers much of Kyrgyzstan tours and has its highest peaks of more than 7,000 metres (22,965 ft). The towering peaks include large green valleys and crystal-clear lakes, with tumbling rivers running through fresh juniper forests. In the wide, green valleys, yurts and horses are frequently used as summer pastures for the animal sheep and in warmer months. Some of the lakes are too cold to swim (such as Son-Kul), but Issyk-Kul is certainly not. The sandy banks and the alpine resorts of Issyk-Kul are ideal for relaxation on the best Kyrgyzstan tours. There are lovers of adventure, and Kyrgyzstan is full of hiking, rafting, skiing and walking, perfect for any adrenaline lover.
Even if nature can dominate, the best tours in Kyrgyzstan do not ignore the country’s culture and history. Spend the night in a yurt, a traditional wooden and felt, sturdy and transportable homestay. The famous Komuz or the Epic of Manas, an epic poem that constitutes a spiritual foundation of modern Kyrgyzstan, is famous for knowing all the textiles of Kyrgyzstan. And make sure you try beshbarmak (found meat boiled with noodles) and kumis (fermented juicy milk).

Top 4 Natural Highlights of Kyrgyzstan
This reserve on the shores of one of the biggest lakes in the country is surrounded by pastures that are favoured by nomadic herders. Don’t be surprised to see a fierce game of ulak tartysh (goat polo) during the summer months.
Spend days hiking canyons and valleys surrounded by snow-capped peaks. Seven spectacular red sandstone cliffs stand guard over the entrance to the Jeti-Ögüz Valley. Local tradition says that the cliffs were once wild bulls, immobilized by the gods to stop them terrorizing local yurt dwellers.
Even in urban areas, Kyrgyzstan’s natural beauty abounds. Karakol is surrounded by orchards and mountains, with a lovely Russian church and colonial houses. Explore tree-lined streets that slope up towards glaciers and pine forests.
Take a beach break with a difference. This alpine lake has been a favourite holiday spot for locals for centuries. After relaxing on the beach, be sure to see the petroglyphs that date back to 500 BC.
Like most of Central Asia, the best time to visit Kyrgyzstan is spring and autumn. As well as being the best weather, in spring the desert flowers bloom and in autumn markets fill with fresh harvest produce. Summer can get very hot and winters are bitterly cold. Winter can also get quite wet and some roads may close due to snow.
With around 90% of Kyrgyzstan above 1500m, your adventure is sure to reach some heady heights. The Tian Shan (Heavenly Mountains) range takes up most of the country and around every corner appears another rolling hill or majestic peak. Kyrgyzstan is also home to some of Asia’s largest lakes, the most famous being Issyk-Kul in the northwest. Kyrgyzstan shares borders with Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and China.
