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 a few more hikes through gorges and waterfalls, or even ride a horse to make our lives easier. Lunch will be served in a traditional yurt in the middle of the gorge. We will spend another evening in Karakol.
Today we drive a long time to reach Semyonov and Grigoriev gorges, and will have picnic lunch at the shores of an ice-cold mountain lake. We will be heading back to Bishkek in the evening.
After breakfast we will visit Ala-Archa gorge which is not far from Bishkek where we will do a small hike and have our last picnic lunch before heading to the airport for the 18:00 flight back home to Dubai.
It is spring time, so prepare for beautiful green and colorful fields of wild flowers. The weather will give you a variety from sun, rain, warm and cold. Be prepared!
