Kyrgyzstan 2003

Lucky that I have a mountain climber for a hubbie, and 2 adventurous souls for children. While my husband climbed Pik Lenin, we toured this magnificent country, and landed up in Base Camp to wait for him as he came down the mountain.

This was perfect travel: new experiences every day, remote and magnificent locations, and a month to be with my little monkeys discovering the world through their eyes.

I have maintained tips for Kyrgyzstan as a whole, plus some more detail on various areas in the country. These include the capital, Bishkek, and places nearby like Tokmak and the Burana Tower, and Ala Archa. Our travels took us to Issyk Kul, where I have maintained tips on the area in general, as well as some specific diversions nearby like Barskoon Gorge, the petroglyphs at Cholpon Ata, the village of Karakol, Ak-Say and hiking in Altyn Arushun, and things to do on the lake itself. In the south, on the border with China, you will find some tips on Naryn and surrounds, and At Bashy.
I have a brief tip on Toktugul.
Lastly, there are tips on the 3000-year old city Osh, as well as the climbing trip to Pik Lenin which is covered in the page on Sary Tash.

Thanks to my daughter who is representing South Africa at the Global Taekwando Federation World Cup in Toronto, we have an excuse to travel again! Yippee! We also included a diversion to canoe in the Algonquin Park, and a road trip up the St. Lawrence seaway.
