Traveling south of Bishkek early March - What not to miss?

by Matthias78 Online Now Jan 19, 2012 at 4:48 AM

I have two days to get from Bishkek airport to Suusamir (down on the M41, close to the junction left to Kochor) and I am looking for an overnight stay in the mountains on the way down there. I need to cross the Too Ashuu pass in possibly wintery conditions so I would be interested in suggestions for a pretty village to try to stay in for the night. All tips welcome.

    CBT (community based tourism) Kyrgyzstan can set up quality home-stays in a variety of villages throughout Kyrgyzstan. I would not recommend them for stays in either Bishkek or Osh, but when i lived in Kyrgyzstan i used CBT a lot for village stays.

    Really great link! I know about CBT but had not envisioned there would be an organization behind it. Many thanks. I will ask them for suggestions north of the pass.

    Any ideas from you guys here will be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Emailed CBT at both email addresses and not received feedback.

    Would somebody have suggestions for a village to stay in before the pass?
