Discover Kyrgyzstan – its mountains, lakes & nomads

Created: 13 March 2024
With a rural population that remains largely nomadic, the mountainous country of Kyrgyzstan is a fascinating choice for travellers and its popularity is growing. For those keen to venture further afield, to remote regions well away from the regular tourist trail, explore Kyrgyzstan sooner rather than later. Rail tour specialist Ffestiniog Travel offers mature travellers a chance to experience this rugged, fascinating country on a Small & Traditional 12-day escorted tour, limited to just 12 people. Bordering China, Kyrgyzstan forms part of the Old Silk Road and this holiday delves into its history with visits to the Ala-Archa National Park, Kyrchyn Gorge (the ancient meeting place of the Kyrgyz tribes), the Seven Bulls of Jeti-Oguz (dramatic sandstone rock formations) and Tash-Rabat, a 15th Century stone caravanserai (roadside inn) on the Old Silk Road. Departing 4 July 2024.
