Self-drive routes

Kyrgyzstan is a country with a great variety of self-drive routes which can be taken for the main program. We promise to organize you a tour at the highest level of service and hope you will find our country interesting.

Mainly we can admit the fact that there are opportunities of going to pristine lakes located high in the mountains, stunning ranges and gorges and of course get acquainted with natural and animal life of the country. You should know that the general quality of roads is bad, and it is necessary to contact professionals for them to describe you all of the peculiarities of the roads.

One of the first sites which you should pay attention is Ala Archa National Park. It is one of the main testimonies of natural purity of the country located in 45km from Bishkek. Guests will be provided with all of the necessary for making a comfortable and interesting trip. So, before setting out Kyrgyzstan tours it is required to decide the main aim - to go hiking, trekking, swimming or just enjoying nature without any efforts.

Then boarders can travel to Chon Kemin gorge as one of the greatest sites for having an opportunity of communicating horses. Getting closer to the gorge all will be able to make a visit of the amazing forest and get a view of unforgettable panorama. Then the route may be going along the famous and one of the most-visited lakes- Issyk Kul. The lake seems to be located at the altitude of 1600m above sea level and is seen as the second largest high-altitude lake after Lake Titicaca in South America. It is possible to find out that the lake never gets freezing. The reason may be the high level of salt. Anyway even in the winter Issyk Kul doesn't freeze. Everyone will find out that being in the Issyk Kul region the following sites should be visited - Grigoryevskoe and Semenovskoe gorges, Jeti Oguz gorge, Barskoon waterfalls and Fairy Tale (Skazka) Canyon.

Karakol town is the other site in the region which should be seen. Such sites as the Russian Orthodox Church, Dungan Mosque and Memorial Museum of N. M. Przhevalsky are the main aim of sightseers making their way in the country.

Kochkor village is one of the villages which is seen to be the main site saving the history of the Kyrgyz people. It is seen to be the site where it is possible to try traditional and amazingly tasty food with the opportunity to witness the process of creation carpets. Continuing Kyrgyzstan tours it is required to pay attention to Tash Rabat and Son Kul Lake. Coming closer to Tash Rabat will be going in the form of the testimony of the history. It used to be the caravanserai, the shelter, for those going along the Great Silk Road. Son Kul is the second well-visited lake at the altitude of 3016m above sea level. It is the place where there is an abundance of emerald green pastures and unforgettable views. But you should know, the lake can be visited just from June to September. Due to the high-altitude location the lake and its territory is covered with snow and ice the majority of time in the year.

Kazarman village is the site located far in the mountains but it is one of the ancient sites of the city Osh. It is located very close to Uzbekistan. Our guests can be convinced about the idea of all the regions to have something peculiar and eye-catching. Now let us talk about the Jalal-Abad region and famous natural park Arslanbob.
