LIVING WITH NOMADS
Season for living with nomads: May – October
Not even Kyrgyzstan can escape the digital age and the rising trend to urbanisation. Luckily, the nomadic culture is still intact in the Naryn region. Every summer, a couple of hundred families move from their villages up onto the high pastures and into the very last valleys of the Tien Shan range.
Ever wonder what it would be like living with nomads? Lucky for you, we know some of those families. Even though they as good as never came into contact with tourists, they agreed to host foreigners in their yurts under the condition that they participate in their everyday tasks. This can be anything from cooking, fetching water, milking cows, herding cattle, to setting up a yurt.
It is clearly not a luxury cruise, but a unique opportunity to experience the nomadic day-to-day life and to get to know Kyrgyzstan in the most intimate way.
