Kyrgyzstan Tour – the majestic silence of the snowy ridges in the mountains, shady forests of slender Tien Shan spruces, foaming waterfalls, numerous crystal clear alpine lakes, colourful green landscapes, including the Suusamyr Valley, with yurts, herd horses, numerous animal and plant species attract numerous tourists to Kyrgyzstan.
One of the most famous and popular holiday destinations is Lake Issyk-Kul, which means “warm lake”. Despite the fact that the lake is located high in the mountains, it never freezes. The water temperature reaches +24 degrees Celsius in summer. The entire lake shore 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. The country was a “bridge” between West and East. Three branches of the famous Silk Road were located on the country’s territory: the Pamir-Altai and the southern and northern branches that ran over the snowy Temir-Too and Pamir passes.
Since ancient times, Kyrgyzstan’s territories belonged to the zone of highly developed Central Asian civilisations and served as a “transshipment point” 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.
