Due to its mountainous terrain, Kyrgyzstan is completely isolated from its neighbors—and has one of the most preserved ancient cultures in the world.

As a crossroads of ancient civilizations on the Great Silk Road and a land of nomads, its people are an almost pristine picture of the great warriors who walked the land centuries ago.

The birthplace of Islam for Central Asia, Kyrgyzs consider themselves to be culturally Muslim, but not devout practitioners.

While in Kyrgyzstan you will share the ancient truth of how God, the ultimate warrior, conquered death so they can live victoriously.

It is common to shake hands with both men and women. Men often greet each other by leaning forward and touching the side of their head to the side of the other man’s head. However, men and women don’t often touch.

Avoid touching food or people with your left hand, as it is viewed as unclean.

Kyrgyz people tend to be indirect communicators. They may not state their needs directly, so foreigners must learn to read between the lines, so to speak. Sarcasm is not understood.
Kyrgyzstan is full of natural beauty, with mountainous green landscape, massive blue lakes, dashing waterfalls, gorgeous beaches, and warm-hearted people.

The mountainous terrain in Altyn Arashan is perfect for backpacking and wandering in beautiful, unspoiled meadows.

Located in Cholpon-Ata lies Petroglyphs, a massive boulder field. Many of the boulders contain images scratched into the surfaces that date back to 1500 B.C.
