Halfway between the two ends of the mythical Silk Road, the ancient trade route once used by caravans between China and the Mediterranean, Kyrgyzstan is an unusual destination with sumptuous and impassive mountains. Familiar travellers to Central Asia, whether from Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan, will be surprised to discover a country with limited infrastructure, little tourist traffic, and where it is often necessary to travel by horseback if you move away from the few beaten tracks. The Kyrgyzstan tourist guide takes you to the heart of a nomadic and equestrian country, to the assault of the highest peaks in the world, like Khan Tengri, Peak Communism and Peak Lenin, where the inhabitants, speaking only Russian or Kyrgyz, continue to bring to life ancient traditions such as the oulak-tartych, a game of extreme violence in which riders compete for the possession of a goat's decapitated carcass, or even falcon hunting. In the east of the country, near Cholpon-Alta, there is the immense Issyk-Kul Alpine lake and its seaside resorts, while in the west, the Kyrgyz Ferghana Valley, mainly populated by Uzbeks, offers all the treasures of its bazaars, crafts and small mountain villages. A complete destination, in the heart of the Celestial Mountains, where your steps will take you on paths that are still deserted. Yes, the adventure is still possible!
