We can give our warm recommendations to anyone considering going to Kyrgyzstan in general, and with Ecotour in particular! We spent two weeks in some of Ecotour's yurt camps, and it was a highly memorable experience. Ecotour was very flexible and had arranged a programme that suited our wishes perfectly.

On this tour you will travel through the beautiful mountains and alpine pastures of Kyrgyzstan. You will encounter the culture and experience the everyday life of the nomads in Kyrgyzstan. Sleep in yurts, the felt tent houses of the nomadic herdsmen and in a mountain lodge. From the yurt camps you can hike into the high mountains accompanied by a guide. In the evening you will return to the yurt camp so you decide for yourself how far you would like to go. And if you want to stay put in the yurt camp and watch daily life that is no problem.

During the three trekking days you will walk from Temir-Kanat to Tosor or the other way around. This hike is reasonably challenging. Your walk will be through a hilly area at an altitude of between 2,200- 2,400m. On the third day of the trek you will arrive at Sonun yurt camp or Temir-Kanat yurt camp. Whilst the trekking you will sleep in small tents that will be carried on horseback, as will your luggage. An interpreter, guide and horsemen will accompany you.

In the beginning of your trip you will make a day hike in the canyons of Boom valley. Also it is possible to walk part of the route to Tuura-suu, our other yurt camps that you will visit during this tour. In Sonun you can go swimming or hike in the badlands.

In Bishkek your accommodation is in a nice friendly hotel, and in the countryside you will spend the nights in family-run yurt camps. During the whole tour you will be accompanied by an English or German speaking interpreter.

This tour suits people who are interested in the nomadic way of life and the culture of the Kyrgyz people. For the hikes you need to be in good physical condition. About 4-6 hours walking a day in mountainous terrain should be within your abilities. You need to be a little adventurous and not to expect luxury.
