Kyrgyzstan is all about nature, horses, yurts and kumis. Mountains here are simply amazing – 90% of the country is above 1500 m and average elevation of the country is 2750 m. Waking up in a frozen morning in the middle of the summer is nothing special. Hiking in snow over 3000 something pass also. People are extremely friendly. No question asked, hospitality here reaches another level.
