Kyr­gyzs­tan is a par­adise for cyclists as one can find here routes of any lev­el of dif­fi­cul­ty. Being a moun­tain­ous coun­try Kyr­gyzs­tan offers a wide range of land­scapes and roads that take you from alpine mead­ows to the sandy beach­es, nomadic fam­i­lies who will wel­come you into their yurt for a taste of the kumis (fer­ment­ed mare’s milk) and big role in all of this plays Issyk Kul Lake.

It’s very often you can hear Euro­pean peo­ple call Kyr­gyzs­tan – “Asian Switzer­land”, how­ev­er vir­gin moun­tains and rich nature exceed foot worn Euro­pean Alps with its pure­ness and wilder­ness. His­tor­i­cal and cul­tur­al aspects of Kyr­gyzs­tan are very inter­est­ing as well. We still have all attrib­ut­es of nomadic life.

Only in Kyr­gyzs­tan, in sum­mer time, we can see yurts (portable nomadic hous­es, dec­o­rat­ed with felt car­pets), real nomads (always kind and wel­comed) and their hors­es who always at your ser­vice to ride if only you would like to.
