Kyrgyzstan is known as Switzerland of Central Asia, and that caption is found to be very true when we travelled in Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan is surrounded with snow capped mountains and valleys, landscape of Kyrgyzstan is very predestine and beautiful, Kyrgyzstan also has one of the largest alpine lake in the world, called Issyk-kul there are so many activities are available for Tourists in Kyrgyzstsan like skiing, paragliding, hunting etc. Its 5N/6D Cultural Tour Package covers Border – Osh – Bishkek-Karakol-Karakol – Altyn Arashan-Bokonbaev-Kochkor – Son Kul lake- Song-Kul lake.
Kyrgyzstan is a nation defined by its natural beauty: joyously unspoilt mountainscapes, stark craggy ridges, and rolling summer pastures (jailoos) are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherd cultures. Add to this a well-developed network of homestays and visa-free travel, and it’s easy to see why Kyrgyzstan is the gateway of choice for many travellers in Central Asia. As can be expected in a country where the vast majority of attractions are rural and high altitude, the timing of your visit is crucial. Summer is ideal with hikes and roads generally accessible. Midsummer also sees Kazakh and Russian tourists converge on the beaches of never-freezing Lake Issyk-Köl. From October to May, much rural accommodation closes down and the yurts that add such character to the Alpine vistas are stashed away. So think twice about a winter visit unless you’ve come to ski.
