If you come to Kyrgyzstan, you have to visit a jailoo (high summer pasture) and other special places, to be alone with nature. Different tours are tailor-made for guests: hiking, on horseback or by car. During tours, you will enjoy the vastness of the mountains, purity of the air and water, meet interesting people and feel the depth and range of Kyrgyz hospitality.

And please remember it’s necessary to treat carefully the nature and enviroment of the regions visited. Especially for the travellers the KCBTA “Hospitality Kyrgyzstan” has developed the following “Ecotrekker’s Rules”: 

  • Please respect local traditions, culture and religion.
  • Pay fair prices for lodging, food and services. Buying local products benefits the local economy.
  • Don’t forget to take off your shoes when entering a home.
  • Don’t smoke in homes.
  • Inform your host about your meal preferences.
  • Always ask before photographing people and try to establish friendly contact before shooting. Please don’t pay money.
  • Please don’t give anything to begging children.
  • Wear good hiking shoes or boots as trails are slippery and stony. Bring warm clothes and a raincoat. Weather in a jailoo may be rainy and cold, even in summertime. Always have a flashlight, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
  • Use your head. Drinking alcohol while hiking is unsafe.
  • Carry a plastic bag for litter. Pack up all non-biodegradable rubbish. Please don’t drop cigarette butts or candy wrappers.
  • High altitude vegetation is frail.  Avoid trampling and do not pick plants or flowers in quantity.

In life of nomads there were lots of holidays and entertainments. National games were closely connected to the nomadic way of life. They improved their qualities and the necessary for their everyday life strength, endurance, horse riding skills. 
The main national horse games are: Ulak-Tartysh (pulling a goat carcass), Tyiyn Engmei (picking up the coin at a full gallop), Er-Enish or Oodarysh (wrestling on a horse), Kyz-Kuumai (run down the girl).
There are a lot of interesting national games as chuke, toguz-korgool, arkan-tartmai, tebetei-tepmei, kez-tanmai, ak-chelmok, etc.

Hunting was one of the primary occupation of the Kyrgyz. Accounts found in legends and epics tell that whole communities and ails made their living just from hunting. Kyrgyz hunters used hunting birds:eagles, falcons and hawks, and their falconry skills were almost perfect. These birds were treated not only as  hunting birds, but it was a totem and a cult object. Good eagles could hunt both wolves and deer.

“El ichi – onor kenchi” Kyrgyz people says, translated as “Field of crafts among the people”. Kyrgyz daily life was occuped by home crafts, particularly those connected with processing of livestock breeding products (wool, leather, rawhide,bone, gutstring, horn, hoof, etc.). The variety of colors, ornaments and patterns amaze us. Main varieties of Kyrgyz decorative arts: patterned thick felt carpets (shyrdak), patterned weaving, woolen carpets with nap, wicker ware of patteterned chiy reed, embroidery, leather products, wood carving, ornamental metalworking, etc.
To open up secrets of handicraft you can use a CBT tour programme ” 1000 and 1 secrets of handicrafts”.
