Central Asia travel guide

Central Asia - Kyrgyzstan (Chapter)

6th Edition May 2014

This is the Kyrgyzstan chapter from Lonely Planet’s Central Asia guidebook.

Kyrgyzstan is defined by its topography: joyously unspoilt mountainscapes, craggy ridges and summer pastures are brought to life by semi-nomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherd cultures. A well-developed network of homestays and visa-free travel means it’s easy to see why Kyrgyzstan is becoming the gateway of choice for travellers in Central Asia.

  • wander the Kyrgyz countryside at its best on a horse trek high into the mountains and across summer pastures.
  • maps
  • star gaze, cloud chase and experience life in a summer herder’s yurt at Lake Song-Köl, a vast upland lake hemmed by a ribbon of peaks.
  • transport
  • whether passing through Sary Tash en route to China or Tajikistan, heading to the Horse Games at Achik-Tash or scaling Peak Lenin, the snowy peaks of the Alay Valley are unforgettable.
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: When to Go, Bishkek, Burana Tower, Chong-Kemin Valley, Lake Issyk-Köl, Northern Issyk-Köl, Karakol, Southern Issyk-Köl, Bokonbayevo, Kadji-Sai & Around, Lake Song-Köl, Kochkor, Naryn, Naryn to Jalal-Abad, Naryn to Torugart, Osh, Alay Valley, Understand Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan Today, History, People, Religion, Arts, Environment, Food & Drink & Survival Guide.
