 The South of Kyrgyzstan – amazing and wonderful region. It is beautiful, peculiar and absolutely not like other regions of our country. Warm climate, wonderful nature, white peaks of mountains, hospitable people – everything of this is an advantage and pride of our region

South part of our tour begins from Osh city – the Kyrgyz pearl of Great Silk Road, from the city with rich history and culture, with peculiar contrast of traditions and customs of the nation, living here from ancient time, with its winding streets, tasty food, legends, myths and with focus to cultural and social life of the city – the eastern bazaar, where there and everywhere are located lively merchants, attracting customers.

 The main attraction of the city is mount Taht-i-Suleiman (Solomon’s throne). It has a right to be called as the stone witness of the history of Osh city, because in its foothills monuments are located, beginning from the late Neolithic era till the end of XIX century. From 2009 Taht-i-Suleiman  is considered as the world heritage of UNESCO

At the second day of excursion we will travel to one of the most amazing places of northern spurs of Pamir – to Kojokelen. The wonderful red cliffs, eccentrically weathered and reminding ancient castles, the blue grot with crystal clear water, and beautiful surrounding landscape will leave unforgettable impression in your soul. 

   Being in the south – it is unforgiveable not to visit one of the ancient cities – Uzgen, which was in far away medieval time one of the capitals of Great Karakhanids (XI-XII century). At that time Uzgen was the fourth city in Fergana valley with its defenses and wealth. Evidence of the architectural heritage of that time has survived to the present day, leaving the memory of skillful masters. And also the main pride of the city is considered the brown rice “devzra”, from which the popular Fergana pilaf is made!

   The culmination of travel in the South Kyrgyzstan is Sary-Chelek biosphere reserve, also listed by UNESCO, due to great name of the lake – one of the picturesque freshwater lakes of our country. This mountain lake will not leave indifferent anyone!

         Our employees will endeavor to do everything, that your stay in Kyrgyzstan is an unforgettable experience of a trip to the still insufficiently known country in touristic sphere, the country of nomadic people.
