The Transit Center at Manas embraces Kyrgyzstan’s culture by adopting some key traditions from around the country. One example of trying out Kyrgyz traditions is the yurt, a circular, tent-like structure, filled with colorful carpets, tapestries and intricately carved furniture.

Kyrgyzstan is a mind blowing country. The terrain is to die for; it’s bicycle touring mecca! The people are ever so kind, the camping and hiking is brilliant, the water blue, the hills grassy… heaven on earth? In our video we cover the experience we had in Kyrgyzstan, in themes: Mountains, Camping, Horses, Bike Riding with Friends, Kindness from Strangers, Home Cooked Cuisine and more.

Burana Tower and Cemetery of Balbals – Travels With Miha

This September morning began early as the night before I was determined to get up and go to see the Burana Tower. Knowing I have to leave the next day at 3am my concern was to get back in time for some sleep . After a good breakfast in the hotel I almost changed my mind. I was feeling a bit tired and lazy. Again, I had to push myself and just roll with it.

The way of the shepherd: Horse trekking through Kyrgyzstan

BBC – Travel – The way of the shepherd: Horse trekking through Kyrgyzstan : Adventure, Asia

In Kyrgyzstan, it is said that its people are born on a horse – so it makes sense to find men and women galloping up and down the village streets on their daily errands in this little-known Central Asian country. It also makes sense that horseback is the most authentic way to see Kyrgyzstan’s dramatic landscapes, following the traditional trails of nomadic herders deep into remote mountainous regions.
