Testimonials

Thanks again Nomad's Land for this True experience in an amazing country still preserved from bad human behaviours. Please continue to share your passion about Kirghizistan.

The best tour agency I've ever had. Highly recomended. I am so glad and thankful for choosing Nomad's Land for my Kyrgyz travel experience. They were the only tour that listened to my wishes and tried to implement them all. They literally left not even one desire unfulfilled: The other tours I contacted were unable to provide me with a yurt accommodation in lake Song-Köl. Nomad's Land was on the contrary very ccoperative. Especially once I knew that the yurt camp owners in Song-Köl waited extra for me before leaving, I was very touched. It seemed to me that Nomad's Land has a wide network of contacts in Kyrgyzstan and they have long and solid experience in the country. The people, yurt camps and hotels Nomad's Land work with, are beyond what I call good. They are perfectly chosen. Thank you Bakyt for not leaving even one desire unfulfilled and cheers to the whole team, including the guide Timurlan and the managers Alex and Samuel.

We had a wonderful 15 days in Kyrgyzstan and wholeheartedly recommend Nomad's Land to anyone the country would tempt - and believe us it is worth it! The team is as competent as it is cheerful and dynamic, with a real desire for ecotourism (it's not just marketing at home and that's a pleasure) and exploring off-track trails. We were able to walk the Kyrgyz mountain trails alone in the world, at our (good) walking pace and having the impression of being Kyrgyz for a little while in our life. A huge thank you to all the team who greatly contributed to such a success of our trip, we hope to have the chance to come back to see you one day!

We left with Nomad’s Land this summer for a week of exploring the surroundings of Kel Suu and we can only applaud the seriousness and professionalism of the agency. Getting in touch was easy, the team was always available and attentive to our needs. In addition to being able to discover a place that is difficult to access for independent hikers - and absolutely superb - we also took a real pleasure in getting more deeply into the Kyrgyz culture by sharing for a few days the life of a local family. A big thank you to our guide for his dynamism, his good humor and for providing us with the keys to understanding the country better. We hope to come back soon and be able to experience another trek with Nomad’s Land!

Nomad's Land was able to organize a superb trip for us which allowed us to discover Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. So much contrast between these 2 countries but with the same warm welcome. The gastronomy enchanted our palates. We will come back to deepen our discovery.

You want to discover Kyrgyzstan and its region, Nomad's Land will be able to offer you a tailor-made stay for this magnificent corner of the world.

Christian

Our beautifully well organized trip allowed us to discover this unknown country for us. Around Lake Issyk-Kul, 2 nights with an eagle trainer, 2 nights with a family in Song-Kul, 2 nights in Tach-Rabat and each time days of transitions through magnificent roads and landscapes. Accompanied by the driver guide Yuri, never short of anecdotes, explanations and stories. Thanks to Samuel and the entire NOMAD’S LAND team for the organization and hosting at the Blue Camel guesthouse.

Tailor-made at a low price! The Nomad's Land team prepared with us the program we wanted without costing us a fortune, on the contrary, we were surprised at the advantageous price. We were very happy with our guides, in Uzbekistan as in Kyrgyzstan, always attentive, and very flexible. We have changed our program several times along the way, without it costing us anything. From the moment we arrived at Bishkek airport, we immediately felt safe and comfortable with our guide. Unforgettable moments spent within the local culture and traditions. And the desire to return there soon. Nomad's Land was recommended to you by friends after a trip through the Tajik and Kyrgyz Pamirs. We quickly realized that the preparation of our trip had been complicated because we had hardly encountered other travelers on remote roads and trails. Without hesitation, we recommend this agency.

We booked a ride from Almaty (Kazakhstan) to Karakol (Kyrgyzstan). This cross border trip is beautiful, and you cross many mountains. It is quite long, and we were riding in a regular sedan. It isn't anything fancy, but it does the trick! Our driver only spoke Russian, but he was very kind and helpful even though we didn't speak much Russian. We stopped for food in a town along the way. We also stopped at Charyn canyon for a few hours. This is a bumpy ride. The road isn't great, and it is slow going at times. The road wasn't paved and had lots of potholes. As long as you don't expect anything fancy, you'll be fine.

Nomad's Land organized a rich itinerary to fit my time constraints and I was blown away. As much as some of the excitement can be attributed to Kyrgyzstan's unparalleled beauty, it was the access to ancient modes of life that Nomads Land facilitated and which swept me off my tired feet. I could taste local hospitality in the settings from yesteryear, swallow a wealth of landscapes where late autumn Eastmancolor competed, mostly successfully, with precocious winter's monochrome. Bakyt, my triingual guide, was super-attentive to my whims and patient with my zombie Russian. From yurts to eagle hunting, textile weaving to archaeology, hikes to simply zoning out to soak up the local flavors - it was all one could wish for in such a short period of time and more. Highly, highly recommended.

We spent this summer three weeks with family (parents and adult children) in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, with a trip to the city of Kashgar in Sinkiang (China) .Nomads' Land organized all the Kyrgyzstan and China part as well as the trips to Uzbekistan. You can work with them with your eyes closed: impeccable organization, enthusiastic and passionate guide (also speaking perfectly French), good choice of accommodation and activities. Very pleasant preparation with Fabien, who is attentive and has concocted a trip to us. All for good value for money. Allow at least 10 days for Kyrgyzstan to really enjoy it. The change of scenery is total and the way of life is authentic. Expect "average" comfort but the superb landscapes and the amazing welcome of the Kyrgyz people will give you unforgettable memories. To fully enjoy it, nothing like walking: you will go on beautiful hikes: Altyn Arashan, Song Kul, Lenin peak ... They are all doable but still require good condition, especially that of Lenin peak (base camp to camp 1), which is quite long and demanding (allow 10-12 hours round trip), but it is the most impressive. To reach the south of Kyrgyzstan, you have the choice between a few hundred km of tiring tracks or to make a detour through China and the city of Kashgar. The road is excellent and the city itself is worth the effort (with the added bonus of "Western-style" comfort which feels good). However, it was necessary to endure two days of painful police checks between Kashgar and the border, with an occupying army (Han Chinese, from the east) omnipresent. So it's up to you to decide (knowing that this "detour" is quite expensive considering the short season and the few tourists). After Kyrgyzstan, we visited the cities of the Silk Road in Uzbekistan: Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Impressive and superb monuments, a very rich history, few tourists and a very pleasant atmosphere. The historic centers are not very extensive and can easily be visited on foot. Do not forget Khiva: it is the smallest of the three but the atmosphere is peaceful and timeless, you sometimes have the impression of going back 100 years. This trip was really exceptional, thank you again to Fabien, Murat and the whole team.

Cyril Caldero

We arrived in Bishkek with no plans. We went to the Nomad's Land office and they were really helpful. They tailored a trip for us and the organisation was incredible. We got to do some horse trekking and some hiking with knowledgeable guides. We definitely recommend (100%!!). Greetings to all the team !

Lea

Fran Stey

I had been to Kyrgyzstan before, but only to the cities and to Issyk Kul. However, I really wanted to get out of the cities and visit more of the countryside and do some trekking through Naryn Oblast especially. The tour with Nomad's Land was excellent for this purpose as there were treks around Issyk Kul, Song Kul, as well as in the mountains near the Chinese border around the caravanserai at Tash Rabat, the last 3 of which we got to stay in yurts and witness nomadic life -- especially near Song Kul. The tour began in Bishkek and the guide was very knowledgeable about the city and the country. Afterwards the hikes were at various altitudes to acclimatize us, finally finishing with a horseback ride and hike at over 4000 meters. This last one was rough for me (I'm 54 years old), but with the previous hikes, I managed to make it. Actually, the horseback riding wore me out more than the hiking, but it was fun and the guides around the country were all helpful and great. There were also cultural things we did as well, like visit a yurt maker and have traditional Kyrgyz meals in peoples' homes. All in all, a very worthwhile and enjoyable trip that gives a great overall picture of Kyrgyzstan.
