23/09/2021    Covid rules and regulations:

At present the Covid-19 situation in Kyrgyzstan seems to be in control. Many people have already been vaccinated and the number of cases is still going down each day, and is much lower than in many European countries.

To enter Kyrgyzstan, one needs either to be fully vaccinated or to have a negative PCR test that is no older than 72 hours upon arrival.  If a PCR test is needed for the return trip, this can be done in Bishkek.

Although life in Kyrgyzstan is back to normal, we still stick to safety measures like keeping distance, avoiding large crowds and frequent disinfection. If one takes these precautions in our opinion, it is safe to visit our country again.

14/03/2020    The Power of the Sun

Something a bit more positive.  We have had solar panels installed at the Umai Hotel and they went live today.  Ecologically this is a good move, eventually financially it will be a good move, and one benefit we did not expect is that it seems we have more and hotter water than before.  Thank you Sun.
