Kyrgyzstan is a land-locked country in Central Asia, located along the ancient Silk Road, a crossroad for people of various origins and traditions, yet the prevailing culture is that of a nomadic lifestyle shaped by the natural surroundings. Kyrgyz shepherds move around with their flocks according to seasons, living in tent-like homes called yurts; there’s a saying that “only in death, when he is buried, a Kyrgyz stops wandering”.
Kyrgyzstan rewards visitors with unspoiled nature, hospitality, and free spirit of nomadic traditions. In summer, high plateau pastures (jailoo) and lakesides are occupied with nomad tents (yurts), it is the best season to experience the nomad lifestyle.
