With the help of Nomad's Land we had one of the most unforgettable trips of our lives this winter. Starting in Bishkek we headed east towards Karakol where our adventure was set to start. We spent 10 days exploring the region surrounding Issyk Kul and Song-Kul, crossing valleys, streams and mountains on horseback with our wonderful guide Mikel. The experiences we had during our trip would not have been possible without the network and organization of Nomad's Land. Within a week of our trip ending we have already started to look at the other trips they have to offer and will definitely travel with them again in the future. While traveling in the winter is not always the easiest, the trip we had was certainly rewarding. If you are up for the challenge, Kyrgyzstan in the winter is a special experience that more people should consider!

Traveling with another student in February 2018, I was able to appreciate the high quality service provided by the Nomad's Land team. She was able to answer us immediately, and draw with us in the space of a few hours a course adapted to our desires on the south shore of Lake Issy-Kul, starting from Bishkek. The advice on places to see and people to stay with (the eagle hunter, the Skazka canyon, Jety Oguz), as well as the prior organization of transfers and walks were excellent, and in fact this trip was more successful. The service is worth its price. I recommend !

We booked a 8 day tour with Nomad's Land, with the main part of the trip a six-day trek in the mountains near Issyk-Kul lake. From the first contact with Nomad's Land they were really responsive, taking time to understand our needs and suggesting a trip that would work for us. As we were travelling quite early in the trekking season (mid-late May), the team made sure that our itinerary would be possible, making adjustments as required. Bakyt organised our trip and was really helpful all the way through the process. On arrival at the airport in Bishkek we were met by our guide Mikel and assistant guide Ivan, and were driven down to the lake by our excellent driver Shakir. The whole team were really welcoming. We spent the first night at Bel Tam Yurt camp which was lovely. Really relaxing and the food was amazing. The next day we started our trek which was incredible! We met our horseman, Ermek, and the two horses that carried all our equipment. This was really helpful so we didn't have too much to carry each day! On the first day the weather was lovely but the next morning we were greeted by a lot of snow! Because of this Mikel took the decision to change our route, which was definitely the right decision as going high in the snow might have been dangerous (and certainly very cold). The whole of the rest of the trip Mikel, Ivan and Ermek took the time to make sure what we were doing was the right thing for the weather conditions, and when we had to change plans they made sure we were consulted and agreed. The food Mikel prepared was really good, and the tents were comfortable, warm and waterproof. We had a great time in the mountains. After our trek ended we spent a day exploring the lake region, including visiting an eagle hunter and a yurt-making business, and on the final day we got to see a little of Bishkek. It was the perfect end to a great trip. Overall I would highly recommend Nomad's Land and the great service from all the team. Thank you!

An agency to recommend who knows the country perfectly. A friendly team who made us discover an endearing country. Huge ski touring spots, a warm welcome from the locals and fabulous landscapes.

Christian Bouteille

Very reliable company and very helpful staff. The trip was tailor made and ended up as an open group tour with Mirbek as a guide. I can totally recommend Nomads Land. The trip was amazing and I have nothing to complain about.

Jessica

As discussed with one of our 'trip designers', a good trip is one where you have fun and you are happy to come home to discuss it with your loved ones ... So, that the very good trip is the one that makes you want to do more and not to leave! ... It goes without saying that my 2 weeks with Nomad's Land was a very good trip. Good mix between cultural experience, skiing in various conditions .. I have felt like an Indiana Jones on several occasions! I believe that their success definitely depends on their good expertise in the field, and without a doubt on the personal dedication of their staff. thanks to the whole team

Valentine

Already 3 trips in 10 years and still organized by a team of professionals. Friendly guides ready to introduce people to Central Asian traditions and cultures. Thank you a thousand times for all our adventures.

Pilar Maret

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.

Nomad’s Land is an agency with a very high level of professionalism. Go there with your eyes closed and re-open them to admire the purity of the landscapes crossed. From the first emails exchanged to the taxi scheduled to return to the airport, everything is expertly managed by Fabien and his team. I chose to go to Kyrgyzstan to find skiing conditions a little different from France, I was not disappointed. The snow remains powdery for several weeks in this season. It's simple, there hasn't been a descent that hasn't happened in 5-star conditions. Gionas, our mountain guide knows these places perfectly. He always knew how to take us where it was the best of the best. But the skiing conditions almost take a back seat compared to the exchanges with the locals and the incredible landscapes in which we have been evolving for almost 15 days. Alex, our guide and steward, allows for a most immersive contact with Kyrgyz culture. The proposed program is balanced, intelligently constructed. There is something for everyone. One word, bravo !!

Goulven Marie

Nomad's Land organized for us, two colleagues, a weekend trip to Chon-Kemin. It was wonderful. They were very responsive to our wishes. The whole experience was very enjoyable. The guesthouse was simple, but fine, with a great host. Beka, our guide, led us expertly. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. Thanks, Fabien, for the great organization and the good advice.

Franziska Gassmann

We went for a 5 day full board trip with our guide Bakyt, of which 3 days was on horseback. Bakyt was extremely accomodating and serviceoriented throughout the trip. He really did go that extra step to make us comfortable. He offered an unplanned detour at little to no extra cost and he was very good at english. I really recommend Nomads land and especially Bakyt.

Lacarelle Josette

It is more than a typical trip, it is an unforgettable life experience: the kindness and hospitality of the Kyrgyz people, the spectacular scenery, their peace ... and not least the company of our guide Mikel, a man of character excellence, kind, with experience in the field, able to solve any setback, with him I and my group of friends felt cared for and calm, we knew that everything would turn out well or better, and so it was.Thank you Mikel for everything and that Life takes care of you I hope that many travelers enjoy your company and your knowledge.

We went on a 9 day trek with the Nomad’s Land team. The organization and communications were easy, the guide brilliant and the route magnificent! Go with them without hesitation!

Lauriane

Thanks to the Nomad's land agency, we were able to discover Kyrgyzstan off the beaten track. We stayed in traditional guesthouses and in yurt camps in the middle of grandiose landscapes. But above all we met very welcoming people, who shared with us their culture and their way of living in harmony with nature.
