Travel to Kyrgyzstan

Our journey through the Middle East started in Kyrgyzstan and took us all the way through Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Armenia and Azerbaijan. One of the places we’ve visited in Kyrgyzstan was Karakol, popular for its Issyk Kul Lake. 1316640380-jalal-abad-Kyrgyzstan-Middle-East-Jalal-Abad

Kyrgyzstan: things to see and do

Sometimes referred to as the Switzerland of Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan is blessed with gorgeous mountain scenery almost everywhere you look. The fact that the country is so little known is mostly down to its isolation and a lack of awareness of its very existence – Kyrgyzstan has only been a country in its own right for two decades or so.

Kyrgyzstan’s landscapes are surprisingly varied, with snow-capped peaks, pine forests and glaciers giving way to open plains and gleaming blue mountain lakes. In places the country really does look Switzerland, whilst elsewhere it can remind one of Scotland, Kashmir and even the Middle East. The mountain vistas alone are reason enough to visit – a visit to Kyrgyzstan would be wasted without trekking to at least one of them and, as there so many locations to chose from, trekking can be done virtually anywhere in the country.

Landscapes of the M41: Osh-Bishkek

The Pamir Highway from Osh to Dushanbe is rightfully famous as a glorious stretch of road with spectacular sights at every turn. Less well-known is the stretch of the M41 that takes one from the southern capital of Kyrgyzstan, Osh, to the administrative capital in the North, Bishkek.


(This post was written to promote the upcoming Central Asia Rally, which will drive along the M41 from Osh to Bishkek.)
