GROUP ESCORTED TOUR

ABOUT THE TOUR

This 10-night camp-to-camp ride is designed for intermediate and above level riders who are willing to embrace the outdoors, explore remote wildernesses, and immerse themselves in a different culture.

We begin in Bishkek where we explore the capital city of Kyrgyzstan. From here we make our way southwards towards Osh, arriving at the Sary-Chelek Nature Reserve, a natural paradise known for its outstanding beauty and only accessible to a limited number of visitors per year. It is here we meet the skilled local horsemen and their horses who play a crucial role in the upcoming adventure.

From our first campsite we ride out into the wild, untamed beauty of the Tien Shan Mountains, passing along rugged mountain paths, through ancient walnut forests and across wildflower-strewn valleys dotted with alpine lakes.

Riding approximately six hours per day, with a break for a picnic lunch, our journey takes us over remote mountain passes and plateaus that offer a unique glimpse into the lives of nomadic shepherds and their families who spend their summers grazing sheep in these elevated regions.

Each night we retire to a private mobile camp set up by the dedicated back-up team with individual tents and a mess tent. Here we eat delicious home-cooked meals at tables laid with Uzbek pottery and lit by oil lamps. This remarkable journey ends as we bid farewell to our trusty horse companions.

We return to Bishkek, where we round off our Kyrgyz adventure with souvenir shopping and more cultural exploring, before flying home.
