We had a great stay in Kyrgyzstan, thanks to Nomad's Land! The organization was at the top, the guide very friendly, and the managers very accommodating on the layout of the course. In short, we warmly recommend their services!
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.
We have visited Kyrgyzstan with the agency Nomad’s Land and we had a great experience with them. They planned and customized the trip to our preferences and they provided us very professional guide and drivers. They were in contact with us during the planning and also during the trip, which is very appreciated. In our case, we preferred to have an organized trip because we had only one week in the country and we wanted to do some hikking as well, therefore, it saved us a lot of time. We would defintely recommend the agency to anyone travelling to central asia.
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.
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.
Excellent company Many thanks to Bakyt, Hybeck, Pacha Sergei and of course to Ais who fully understood my expectations, Thank you Nomad's Land for these 8 dream days
We had the opportunity to call on the services of "Nomadsland" during our crossing of Tajikistan by the M41. The advice of Samuel, the driver and the accommodation offered in Murgab and SaryTash made it possible for us to have an unforgettable trip. We highly recommend this agency for the quality of services and its professionalism. In addition, Samuel communicates in excellent French!
Working with Nomad's Land was amazing. I was able to completely customize my 3 day horseback tour through the Chong Kemin National Park. The guides they provided were amazing. As a group of two women, we felt incredibly safe and well taken care of the entire time. Will definitely work with Nomad's Land next time I'm in the region!
Nomad's Land (Alex) helped us to plan and organize 8-days self-guided trekking in the mountains surrounding Karakol. It was our first visit in Kyrgystan and it was really good to rely on advices and suggestions of someone having mountain experince and knowledge of the local customs. The trekking was great, we started at Jeti-Oguz, then crossed Telety Pass, went down to Karakol valley, ascent to Alakul Lake, crossed Alakul Pass and went down the valley to Aksu. Nomad's Land arranged for us a nice trip from Karakol to Almaty by a private car, during which we visited the amazing Sharyn Canyon.
Nomad's land organized a horseback riding trip to accompany Kyrgyz shepherds transhumance to the grasslands. It was a wonderful experience to live with the shepherds and their families and lead the flocks of sheep, goats, cows and horses to their summer camp. It was a great way to get to know these local families a little better, and it was made possible thanks to the long-term relationship and trust built between Nomad's Land agents and these shepherds for more usual tours taking travelers the the mountains. Our guide Fabien knows the region by heart and it was fascinating to see how he can place on his very little scale map all the landscapes and mountains range and summits we could see, as well as the grasslands that we were crossing, even when there was almost no road or track ! Fluent in French, English and Russian, his Kyrgyz language abilities are also growing day by day, making him our interpret every day and making the discussions with the families so much richer and interesting. Katja, another guide who accompanied the more experienced riders, astonished me with her knowledge of Kyrgyz language and about the horses culture in Kyrgyzstan. I totally recommend Nomad's Land and I would love to come back. All trips are special and their memories dear to me, but for sure this trip was extremely beautiful and special, as well as very well organized.
Traveling to Kyrgyzstan is in itself a different experience and far from any imaginable stereotype; If you add an off-road guide, fun, versatile, communicative, aware of the well-being of the group and more decisive than McGiver in a hardware store, you have all the perfect components to make the adventure unforgettable! Mikel was able to extract from us, among thousands of moments of laughter and good humor, skills and a capacity for improvement that many of us do not even imagine. And, although a few weeks have passed, I can say that he has managed to transmit and maintain in all his spirit - probably innate - of struggle, adaptation, respect for the environment and for the cultures that are alien to us, as well as joy and gratitude for every little thing that we were able to enjoy. And also, the curiosity to learn and extract the positive from each new experience! (including misadventures) :) Anyone traveling to Kyrgyzstan should know that unforeseen events happen, but they are a perfect opportunity to redefine planning and be surprised by each new possible adventure. And that, Mikel knows. That's why in his red backpack, there are thousands of letters up his sleeve. Someone in the group defined him as a "human referent". Frankly, I can't agree more. Thank you Mikel for sharing with us your experiences and that wisdom that is so natural to you. And to Nomad's Land, for the signing piece! And above all, if you agree with him, ask him earnestly for "little carrion" (and write a comment here). I assure you that you will live many adventures, but with laughter, a healthy mind and a good mood, you will probably not find the same trip. It was like going back to childhood, only at 35
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 !
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 !!
1 week of exploration around Kel-Suu at the top, despite the vagaries of the weather. We can only salute the seriousness and professionalism of the agency. Easy contact, team attentive. 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 into Kyrgyz culture more deeply. A big thank you to our great guide for having motivated us whatever the circumstances, inventing new recipes based on kurut and allowing us to better understand the country. We hope to be able to leave with Nomad’s Land as soon as possible!
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!
Went on a ski/yurt tour with them in Jan 2019. No complaints, driver and guide were excellent, homestays were good. Highly recommended, especailly when I hear from friends about other tours that were nowhere near as good with other companies! Would maybe head back, but snow quality very variable. Summer is the time to go, for hiking.
Dear Nomad's Land - especially Alex Johnson. You have helped us during preparation of our trip, arranging border zone permits, transportation to mountains, advise in arranging maps and also being a contact person in case of emergency. We had arranged most stuff over internet beforehand. It was generally very helpful and I would recommend to our friends Nomad's Land for tracking in Kyrgistan. And there is so much to see in that country yet. It would be great to visit Kyrgistan again. Thank you.
Excellente agence qui organise des tours pour tous les goûts : détente, treks faciles à difficiles, découverte culturelle, rencontre avec la population kirghize, sport d'hiver, etc. Lors de mes différentes expériences avec Nomad's Land, les guides et interprètes qui m'ont accompagné ont toujours fait preuve d'un grand professionnalisme et d'une grande assurance. Les tours ont toujours été minutieusement organisés et ont toujours répondu à mes attentes. Je recommande sans réserve cette agence à quiconque qui désire découvrir ce merveilleux pays !
Quick and efficient in the discussion prior to the tour. Both guides (ski touring and horse riding) were friendly &amp; very knowledgeable. Highly recommended !
Tailor-made trip, flexible and welcoming team, super friendly guide and hikes adapted to our abilities and our desires. Wonderful way to discover Kyrgyzstan!
