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.
Great team here, they know how to take care of you. Very humble and friendly. We spent a week in southern part and they managed it really well. The place in Bishkek is great, on a quiet street but not too far from centre. Very impressed and will highly recommend.
