“Golden Yurt” Yurt Camp
If you travel to Central Asia, you cannot lose the opportunity to stay in yurts – traditional dwelling of nomads made of felt. Golden Yurt is a yurt camp that combines traditional Kyrgyz style and modern comfort!
“Golden Yurt” camp is located in the southeast of the Issyk-Kul basin, in Jety-Oguz Valley – one of the most beautiful places of Kyrgyzstan! It was formed by the river Jety-Oguz that descends to Issyk-Kul from the northern slopes of the Terskey Ala-Too ridge.
Jeti-Oguz gorge gradually flattens out into the wide Kek-Jayik valley, covered with tian-shan spruce forests almost to the top of the ridge. Above the forest zone (at aprox. 3000 m) there is a wide valley with magnificent subalpine and alpine meadows called “jailoo”. In spring and summer there is a real flower festival in the Jety-Oguz gorge! Among the flowers covering the gorge you can find edelweiss, alpine chamomiles, asters and inula (the golden root).
Besides, the famous Jety-Oguz resort is located at the same gorge. It is known for its therapeutic geothermal sources. Here you can take therapeutic water and mud procedures and enjoy the unique mountain climate of the area. Moreover, the territory of the resort is surrounded by beautiful brick-red rock formations, known as “Broken Heart” and “Seven Bulls”, composed by tertiary (Paleogene) reddish deposits.
“Golden yurt” consists of 12 yurts decorated in traditional Kyrgyz style! Each yurt combines the interior decoration of typical nomad dwelling and modern living conditions.
The yurts are equipped with comfortable beds (from 2 to 6 single or double beds depending on the yurt). Moreover, all yurts are equipped with stoves.
