Explore a Nomadic Culture

Travel Inspiration

In this issue, we have put together a collection of articles, interviews and photos that we hope will give you a good idea of what to expect in Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyzstan is a nomadic country that sees a good part of its population leave the villages in the summer to go to the mountains, looking for pasture for the cattle and horses. They are proud to have kept their nomadic way of living as well as their traditions and culture. This magazine is a celebration of nomadism. Enjoy it!

Unique Encounters

In the country of Nomads, it is not surprising that many of the encounters happened in the jailoos (the mountain pastures) where we met Kyrgyz that came from different walks of life.

Here, the chances are high that you will come across a manaschi, a falconer and a horseback archer.

Traditional Kyrgyz Dishes

Kyrgyzstan’s cuisine is almost a mystery to the majority of the visitors. Who has found a Kyrgyz restaurant outside the country? Expect to find many tasty dishes that rely a lot on meat. You will challenge your taste-buds when trying the fermented mare’s milk (kumis) and the typical salty cheese balls (korut).

Unforgettable Moments in Kyrgyzstan

The unforgettable moments aren’t necessarily the easiest ones. Watch how we fell into a muddy ditch and having trouble getting out of it, until two friendly Kyrgyz came to our help and instantly we were able to continue our trip.
