About the Adventure
Kyrgyzstan is a nation defined by its natural beauty and has been described as a "surreal Switzerland". Joyously unspoilt mountainscapes, stark craggy ridges and rolling jailoos (summer pastures) are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherds. MAG is exploring this country by car and self driving. Don't worry, just hop on and be a passenger and enjoy the beauty the country has to offer. We will do offroad, small hikes and inhale beautiful greenery while mountain caps will still be covered by snow.
We will arrive early morning in Bishkek, pick-up the cars and drive to Issyk-Kul Lake where we will stay overnight in a yurt camp, right on the shores of the lake.
After breakfast we will head to Karakol but not without stopping at a few gorges and waterfalls. We will stay in Karakol and explore the city in the evening.
After breakfast, we are going for scenic drives and the higher we go to reach an ice-cold mountain lake, we might still see a few snow patches. Lunch will be served in a traditional yurt in the middle of the gorge. We will spend another evening in Karakol.
After an adventurous drive to the top of a mountain, we will switch from 4-wheel to 4-hooves and take a scenic ride through the valley along an ice-cold river. We end with a dip into hot springs and then we will drive back to Bishkek.
After breakfast we roam the market for some souvenir hunting and then we will go back to the airport.
