One of the most beautiful countries in the world, Kyrgyzstan has it all: glorious mountain scenery, a rich nomadic tradition, Silk Road monuments and thrilling wildlife. Author and seasoned traveler Laurence Mitchell is an expert in the country and in this fully updated edition details all the services and experiences on offer, including trekking, mountaineering, horse riding, historical sites, festivals and Kyrgyz culture. Of all the Central Asian ex-Soviet states, Kyrgyzstan is widely considered to be the least expensive and offer the best value for money. It is also by far the easiest to enter as visas are no longer required for most passport holders.
Laurence Mitchell is a freelance travel writer and photographer who has travelled widely in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus region, Central Asia and the ex-Soviet world. He has been interested in Kyrgyzstan and Kyrgyz culture since his first contact with Kyrgyz nomads at a yurt in northwestern China whilst en route to Pakistan.
