Kyrgyzstan may evoke images of snowy peaks and formidable mountain passes, yet hidden in the shadows and crevices of these towering ranges are countless historical and cultural treasures of great significance. These sites are as varied as the colors woven into traditional Kyrgyz feltwork, ranging from remote caravanserais to petroglyphs to mysterious towers, yurt camps to mountains villages to historic downtown Bishkek.
Beyond the sites, however, you’ll find that many of the greatest cultural discoveries in Kyrgyzstan can’t be located on a map, so whether you’re listening to the legends that surround this nomadic land, tasting the local cuisine or mastering the art of making those colorful felt rugs, Kyrgyzstan will come alive with a vibrancy that can’t fully be conveyed in words. And don’t worry, for along the way there will be plenty of mountains to enjoy, too!
