A land of towering peaks and wide open skies - Kyrgyzstan is a paradise for any hiker. This 9 day trip will take you to the heart of its wilderness and show you the secrets of rural Kyrgyz culture. Having arrived in Bishkek, you will travel to the Chon Kemin Valley where you can enjoy a spectacular half day hike. From there travel on to Karakol, the biggest city in the Issyk Kul region, before heading off the beaten track into the Jyrgalan Valley. Still little known to tourists, the valley is home to a spectacular 58km hiking route - the Boz Uchuk trail. Spend three days on the mountain path, enjoying spectacular alpine lakes and mountain views as you go, before making your way back along the southern shore of Issyk Kuk Lake. Meet eagle handlers in Bokonbaevo village and see the iconic Burana Tower before returning to Bishkek for your departure flight. This trip, like all tours on the TravelLocal site, is tailor made and can be adapted to meet personal interests or requirements.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
