Horse riding in Kyrgyzstan, Truly Nomadic Land

About the Activity

Spend five days on horseback like a Kyrgyz nomad, exploring the heart of the rugged Alay mountains in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Spend four nights in yurts with Kyrgyz host families who spend their summers tending and protecting their herds of sheep, cattle, and horses. On the fourth day, summit Ak Tor Pass and enjoy the sweeping expanse of the Alay Valley unfolded on all sides. -Scenic mountain views at Airy Bell (2956 m) and Ak Tor (4,185 m) mountain passes where you’ll feel as though you’ve landed on another planet. -Sleeping in a traditional yurt where you’ll have an opportunity to meet Kyrgyz shepherds, learn about traditional nomadic culture, and enjoy home-cooked meals. -Community-Based Tourism. Your use of us will contribute to local communities.
