Kyrgyzstan – Best Destination for a Photo Tour


The readers of the Russian edition of National Geographic have definitely proven their taste for beauty and adventure: In a survey, in which more than 250 000 Russians have participated, they voted for Kyrgyzstan as “Best Destination for a Photo Tour”. With all its untouched mountain ranges, vast landscapes, high altitude lakes of the deepest blue and still mainly shaped by the proud nomadic traditions of the Kyrgyz, we couldn’t agree more!

Let us take you on a visual trip to exotic places like the imposing Tian Shan Mountains, the busy Bishkek or or the yurts of the nomads and prove you why the Russians’ choice is just the right one.
