Arriving in Kyrgyzstan guests are met by drivers and managers in Manas International Airport. They take them to the capital of the state and tell the short plan for the day. The way to Bishkek takes 30 min and 34km. Then we decide what we are doing first - visit the Ala Archa gorge or make a city tour. When we arrive at the gorge, we see the place actually originated in 1976, it is the zone of control. The name of the gorge means "colorful juniper", and furthermore juniper (archa) is bur by the Kyrgyz people to clean the space and get away evil spirits. You will travel along the winter Tien Shan forest, probably glacier and Ratzek's hut, all depends on your abilities while having a tour here. Then we return back and go along Pobeda Square (Victory Square), Duboviy Park (Oak Park), Central Ala-Too Square, Old Square, National Philharmonic. In the end of the day there will be a lot of photos and great emotions, the night is booked in the hotel.

Day 2: Bishkek - Burana - Kochkor
Today we pay attention to the Asian Bazaar. It is located in the very center of Kyrgyzstan and seems to be the place for making photos of boosted with energy local people, talk to them and buy traditional Kyrgyz things, clothes, and a lot of more.  It is going to be in the morning. Then we start for Burana Tower, the minaret created in the 11th century, used to be one of the sites for the wanderers along the Great Silk Road. It is a museum of balbals. In translation from the Turkic language it means "ancestor".  Then goes the way to Kochkor village. There will be a sleepover in one of the Kyrgyz families.

Day 3: Kochkor - Issyk Kul southern shore - Karakol
Today we will be visiting the south of Issyk Kul Lake, famous for being transparent lake at the elevation of 1600m above sea level. The Issyk Kul region is rich for various peculiar places, as Bokonbaevo village. Here guests can watch eagle hunting. Berkuts live with berkutchi for about 20 years, they are taken from the nests as babies and used to trust and respect their man. The show goes with the eagles hunting foxes and hares, sometimes bigger animals. In the same region we visit Karakol. The place of delicious ashlyamfu, the home of Dungan mosque and Orthodox Church. These religious places can be visited in a trip in Kyrgyzstan, they are the identification of the same concepts - being respectful to the others. Nearly before our visiting of the town we mention Red Rocks of Jeti Oguz gorge and the mountain for vaulting Broken Heart. In one of lodging houses the night will be reserved.

Day 4: Karakol - Issyk Kul Lake northern shore - Chon Kemin
Here we travel to the north of Issyk Kul Lake, early in the morning at 8am. The lake is said to be the pearl of the country. Lots of people all of the countries of the former Soviet Union come here annually. Though being not the biggest one, it is still one of the most encouraging lakes of the country. In the winter it is impossible to swim or dive here, but the lake never freezes and the beauty of the winter lake can be seen and photographed. The second part of the day will be devoted to the route to Chon Kemin. Here there is a museum of artifacts, and handicraft. Today we sleep in the homestay, but tomorrow the trip will continue.
