Trekking. General Information
Kyrgyzstan's diverse topography and scenery make it an ideal place for trekking. Whether you just want to go for a gentle amble along a pleasant country lane or push yourself to the limit on some severe routes, Kyrgyzstan has it all. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and you can be assured of seeing unique flora and fauna along any route you choose to take. Maybe you like to trek through rugged mountain gorges and alongside tumbling streams, or perhaps you prefer to walk across vast open expanses of wild grassland pastures and on into high altitude alpine meadows spotted with incandescent poppies and homely yurts. The term 'wild' is loosely used in tourism language but this is one place where we can assure you that it is a very fitting description, and here there are whole tracts of land that have remained untouched by mansince the beginning of time. Kyrgyzstan has many routes to choose from….. from short "day treks” to the more demanding expeditions requiring, say, a couple of weeks.
The quality of our staff and equipment have helped us maintain an excellent record in providing successful treks to satisfied clients.
Our guides have been trained to Western standards and had a probationary period in the "Mecca” of trekking - Nepal. Having all the necessary knowledge, they will readily tell you about the geography, flora and fauna of Kyrgyzstan, adding an educational elemeny to an exciting tour.
Our cooks have been specially trained to provide our clients with a varied and balanced diet. Throughout the trek, guests receive hot food. Vegetables and fruit are an inseparable part of the daily diet. Special dietary requirements can normally be provided, especially if you inform us beforehand. Following the hygiene and sanitary norms are paramount for our cooks.
Where possible we provide porters and baggage transport during treks, for your convenience. You just need to decide what you will carry during the day and the rest of your gear will be delivered safely to your camping place on time.
