Kyrgyzstan adventure travel: At the very heart of the ancient Silk Road, Kyrgyzstan houses some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery in the world.

Hike through the beautiful snow-capped Tian Shan Mountains; camp on the shores of turquoise glacial lakes; bathe in the natural mountain hot springs.

Ride horses across verdant plateaus and stay in traditional yurts – the home of the local nomadic peoples whose culture of horsemanship, archery, falconry and wrestling is still preserved in all its glory.

“Joining the trekking tour to Kyrgyzstan with YellowWood Adventures was the best experience ever. You embark on a true adventure going to remote non-touristy places unlike other rival tour operators that boast of going to unbeaten paths. The company offers a bespoke personalised service and you are certainly not treated like a reference number. I highly recommend the YellowWood Adventures experience.”
