The history of “Kyrgyzland”
“Kyrgyzland” – a tourist company. It was found in the 1997 year.
Family Danichkins are founders. They have been living in Kyrgyzstan for many years and undoubtedly love this country for its amazing nature. The idea of creating a travel company arose not from scratch. From a young age, its founders, Alexander and Lyubov, began to go to the mountains and work in climbing camps. For many years, tourism has become a way of life for them. And when the opportunity arose to open their own business, the choice, of course, focused on what they know best, namely on adventure tourism.
Initially, being a small family-owned company, we worked in two main areas - trekking (hiking) and car adventure tours in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. But, today we work in various areas of tourism. And the geography of tours expanded to the limits of neighboring countries - Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan.
We organize the following types of travel:
Car tours. During trips on the roads of Asia, you can see all the diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna that can only be found in our area. Also, these trips are full of the cultural programs - historical monuments, craft workshops, national festivals and acquaintances with the national cuisine and life of the peoples of Asia.
Trekking (hiking) tours. For hiking lovers, we offer a variety of different routes. Starting from the most popular, along the Terskey, the Kyrgyz ridge and on the Engilchek glacier, to the most unusual and exotic, and remote, which you can only dream of.
Horse tours. We offer the most interesting long routes through the gorges and passes of the middle part of the Terskey Ala-Too ridge. Also, horseback riding in all regions of Kyrgyzstan.
Climbing expeditions. We organize special expeditions to the obscure mountain areas, where there is an opportunity to climb on new routes and conquer nameless peaks. In addition, we can assist in organizing trips to already known and frequently visited climbing base camps.
Skitouring, freeride, snowshoeing. Another direction for lovers of winter nature and thrills. At your service, we provide experienced and certified guides who know their business well. Safety for them above all. Programs are prepared for both: experienced riders and beginners. You can use the services of yurt camps in remote areas, or organize your own expedition.
Wildlife (wildlife) tours. You can thoroughly familiarize yourself with the flora and fauna of Central Asia. These include:
- Watch wild animals in their natural habitat, such as, for example, the snow leopard, lynx, wolf, fox, argali (Marco Polo mountain sheep), mountain goat and many other rare animals.
- Botanical tours in which you will get acquainted with the plant world of the Tien Shan mountains.
- Ornithological tours, as a rule, cover not only the winged inhabitants of Kyrgyzstan but also those that live in Kazakhstan.
As a supplement to the main activities, the company provides a service for booking individual services (hotels, transportation, paperwork, etc.).
