Amazing Kyrgyzstan - excellent guiding
ReviAmazing Kyrgyzstan - excellent guidingThanks to Timur/Visit Karakol for making our first visit to Kyrgyzstan the very best. All the way from Manas Airport/Bishkek to Karakol, and then further on the next day to the hot spring "behind the mountains". Outside Bishkek, in Tokmok, we had a stop at the huge Sunday animal market. Never seen anything like it before! Then the lunch at the dumpling restaurant in the backstreet nearby. And most of all: The unforgettable drive the next day in heavy snow and whiteout along unplowed roads over the pass Chon Ashuu (3800), though the most beautiful landscape to the hot spring at Sary-Jaz. Timur, always steady and positive. Timur, the positive and professional Kyrgyz guide. Hope you will take us, the Norwegian Trio, for new adventures next time we will visit your fantastic country. Thanks for your tiptop service, friendship, experience and guiding!ew text...
Snowboarding in Kyrgystan - splendid
Completely unknowing what to expect, we visited Kyrgystan with a group of 7 skiers and snowboarders. We were absolutely blown away by the country. And by its (off-piste) skiing possibilities. The people at Visit Karakol made it all possble for us. Great service, friendly, English speaking drivers and a proactive approach. I would surely recommend them when you are thinking of planning a Kyrgyz adventure.Review text...
