We strongly recommend Visit Karakol! This we do because:- It was very easy to arrange a tour with Visit Karakol. We got an immediate response when we contacted the company.- The nature we experienced during our day trip was the most beautiful we’ve ever experienced. All in all we strongly recommend using Visit Karakol; you get a safe and personal experience!
My wife and I from Alaska USA and our two young adult daughters took the Kyzly-Jar day tour. It was an awe-inspiring trip and experience we will never forget. We first took a short hike up a red sandstone canyon/ravine next to the Seven Bulls, then up a beautiful valley and a hike through mountain forests to a lovely waterfall. Then farther up the valley we lunched in a meadow along a glacial stream with a view of the 15,000 foot Boris Yeltsin peak. Every part of this trip was wonderful, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking to experience the grandeur of Kyrgyz nature and landscapes in a day trip.
