"Most of what I've said on my..." Kyrgyzstan Favorite Tip by Beefy_SAFC

Kyrgyzstan General: 28 reviews and 23 photos


Favorite thing: Most of what I've said on my Uzbekistan page applies here also. So best to refer to that. Kyrgyzstan is a mountainous country that only qualifies me visiting it, due to me walking across the border from Uzbekistan in the Pamir Mountains (I spent a total of five hours in Kyrgyzstan). So I'm not the best person to ask. There's also the Tian Shan Mountains, which makes for a great place to go trekking. The two main attactions I can think of (neither of which I got to) have to be Lake Kyzyl Kum and Osh Hippodrome.

Fondest memory: Has to be the mountain scenery...

...oh, and the deluge of rain that I got hit by in what was supposed to be the dry season. But that's how the weather works - it can be baking hot elsewhere and the mountains just seem to draw in the rain clouds from nowhere. So if you're in the mountains, pack a waterproof.
