Kyrgyzstan: Ride The Mountains of Heaven

Overview:

For anyone with an interest in horse riding, our horse treks in Kyrgyzstan are simply the best adventures we do. Riding high into the amazing Mountains of Heaven, following in the footsteps of warriors, nomads and a thousand Silk Road traders, you will experience life above and beyond the worries of mankind in one of the most pristine wildernesses left on earth.

This tour, on a real Silk Road trail, takes our clients on an exciting and adventurous route from one of the last remaining great Silk Road caravanserais at Tash Rabat via the Altai region to the beautiful lake Son Kul. Riding through these remote mountain areas will be sure to have you feeling like the real Silk Road travellers of old.

  • Traverse the spectacular landscapes of the Tien Shan via horseback
  • Visit the ancient Silk Road Caravanserai of Tash Rabat
  • Cross the turquoise Naryn river, a tributary of the historic Syr-Darya
  • Stay in wild camps, homestays and yurt camps in breathtaking scenery like Son Kul glacial lake
  • Head to the Black Lake region for the chance to encounter nomads and learn their way of life
  • Stop at the remote 11th century Burana Tower en route to Kochkorka village
