Sleep in a yurt with Kyrgyz families

Mountains can be inhospitable places where few to no population dares to live, but the Western part of the Tien Shan mountains is home to nomadic or traditional populations who settle in small yurt camps in the middle of complete wilderness.

When traveling through the Western Tien Shan, you will be offered different housing solutions to spend the night and live an unparalleled experience. Among these unique overnight accomodations, you will be able to stay overnight in a yurt as a guest of a Kyrgyz family.

Those community-based tourism opportunities are giving you the chance to experience what sleeping in a traditional yurt feels like, but you will also be able to experience authentic, tradition life. You are guaranteed to have a unique experience while forming authentic human encounters and gaining insight into a new culture.

This is your chance to live a life-changing and memorable experience which combines cultural exchange and natural exploration as yurts stays are often located in unspoiled lands, while also supporting local communities by providing them with new forms of revenue.
