The Kyrgyz Republic, small but spectacular, is an Asian Shangri La, surrounded by mountains and often referred to as the Swiss Alps of Asia, it is the jewel in the crown of Central Asia.


Cut adrift by the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990’s, the country was renamed the Kyrgyz Republic and the capital city Frunze became Bishkek. The process of filling the power gap continues; currently all political models lean towards democracy and a free market economy.


The rural population, freed from the unnatural constraints of soviet collectivization, now happily pursues their semi nomadic life style and culture. On this tour you will have the opportunity to cross the cultural divide, interact with the local nomadic people, sleep in an authentic shepherd’s family Ger, and share their food.


In the Celestial mountains you will cross several 3000 meter passes, descend into flower filled meadows, circumnavigate serene Lake Son Kul and finish riding on the shore of Lake Issyk Kul.


Outside of Bishkek there is a lack of westernized tourist facilities. Participants should be comfortable with the reality of a wilderness experience.


There will be days of tough riding over high passes on rough surfaces. Support vehicles will be in attendance.

Our tours to Kyrgyzstan in 2016, 2017 and 2018 were very successful and we are looking forward to returning in 2019.

This is a Grade 3+ tour - see grading information.
