Cultural trekking

Trekking that has the goal to discover the Kyrgyz mountain culture. A recent trend in the mountain tourism industry has been international interest in eco trekking, where cultures, as well as the natural landscape is discovered by tourists. Kyrgyzstan is one of the few remaining cultures that still uses yurts as seasonal dwellings and has kept alive their traditions of moving into the high mountains in summer to tend to sheep, horses and cattle. The high mountain lakes and pastures of the Naryn region attract more and more eco tourists each year. These are tourists that have hiked in mountains in their own countries but still seek new adventures.
