Kyrgyzstan Tour – the majestic silence of the snow crests in the mountains, shady forests of slender Tien Shan spruces, foaming waterfalls, numerous crystal clear alpine lakes, colorful green landscapes, including the Suusamyr valley, with yurts, herd horses, numerous animal and plant species attract many tourists to Kyrgyzstan.

One of the most famous and popular holiday resorts is Lake Issyk-Kul, which means “warm lake”. Despite the fact that the lake lies high in the mountains, it never freezes, the water temperature reaches +24 degrees Celsius in summer. The whole sea coast is surrounded by sandy beaches, the crystal clear water surface combined with the mountain air creates a unique microclimate, as close to the sea as possible. It should also be noted that there are many hot mineral springs and healing muds near the coast.

Kyrgyzstan attracts foreign tourists thanks to its connection to the Great Silk Road. Kyrgyzstan was a “bridge” between West and East. On the territory of the country there were three branches of the famous Silk Road: the Pamir-Altai and the southern and northern branches, which ran over the snowy passes Temir-Too and Pamir.

Since ancient times, Kyrgyzstan’s territories had belonged to the zone of highly developed Central Asian civilizations and served as a “trading centre” for intercontinental trade. The development of trade led to the interpenetration of cultures and, as a result, to the growth of cities, science and crafts. One of these cultural centres at the crossroads of the caravan routes is the ancient city of Osh.
