Central Asia - Kyrgyzstan (Chapter)
This is the Kyrgyzstan chapter from Lonely Planet's Central Asia guidebook.
Like some kind of Central Asian Shangri-la, Kyrgyzstan’s soaring peaks and rugged ranges form both barriers and borders. And like James Hilton's mythical landscape, once entered it can be difficult to leave.
- join a horse trek high into the mountains and across summer pastures to see the Kyrgyz countryside at its best
- visit the bizarrely un-freezable Lake Issyk-Köl
- take in some breathtaking scenery on a trek out to Altyn Arashan’s steaming hot pools
- haggle your way from one stall to the next, like centuries of Silk Road traders before you, in Osh’s bazaar, which locals claim is older than Rome
