      Backpacking Group tour operator for Central Asia

      Kyrgyzstan Apr 4, 2014 at 9:38 AM

      Hey guys

      I am planning to visit the Central Asia this summer (probably Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan) and was looking for a tour operator that offers backpacking tours for groups (i.e. for individuals to travel together, and not for already existing groups that plan a trip together).

      I have traveled like this before and loved the spirit of the group of like-minded travelers from all over the world that I shared my experiences with as well as the fact that I could enjoy the trip, instead of wasting my time organizing accomodation or transportation (so please don't come up with the recommendation that I should travel there on my own ;)).

      I am 25 years old and looking for a tour where people are around my age. The trip should be a broad mixture of activities and should visit the big cities as well as some hidden spots.

      Has anyone already done a trip like this or can suggest any operators that provide such group tours?

      I am thankful for any advice!

      Bishkek and . . . ? ? ?

      Kyrgyzstan Mar 19, 2014 at 6:58 AM

      In late April I will be flying into Bishkek and flying out after only 6 days.
      I am a 65 year-old male and have a bad leg; so no trekking for me except for bazaars and lakeshore.
      Further, I am a teacher, so I travel on a small budget.
      I am considering getting out of Bishkek; the obvious options seem to be:
      1) Karakol and/or Balykchy (I would enjoy walking on the lakeshore)
      2) Osh and/or Jalal Abad
      Thank you for any suggestions

    • Lazy (novice) hike Partner around Karakol area- in JUNE

      Karakol Apr 15, 2008 at 1:39 AM

      I am planning a trip through Asia and Kyrgyz is on my list. I will have only around 4 or 5 days here. ( tight schedule)
      Looking for some fun novice walking partners for a lazy walk around Karakol area, stay in a fun yurt or one of those fun lodges, a visit to the sanatorium and soak in the thermal waters, Holy Trinity Cathedral, campfire, etc.

      Is it possible to get a KYRGYZ tourist visa at the airport on arrival? How much is this visa? I accept any good advice from you!
