In fact this destination, in which 50% of it's territory spans more than 3000 metres, is a paradise largely untouched by the hordes of mass tourism. It's population, consisting of Nomads and shepherds and dotted with horses, offers up a huge contrast to that of your usual western lifestyle; and you should expect to feel largely disoriented on your first night in a yurt camp - the typical local habitat you'll see very often here.

Let's not forget that Kyrgyzstan is also Asia, seen when observing the Bichkek towns and the huge bazaar Osh, Karakol and the Toktogoul villages, Kazarmane and Kochkor, where age-old traditions are still very much alive despite how time's evolved.
