    Super ambiance du groupe, des organisateurs et des guides trek chon kemin 2017. Nature, Nature * 10 et trรจs pros et trรจs sympa pour vous faire dรฉcouvrir le kirghizistan pays qu'ils aiment.J'ai hate d'y retourner, merci Nomad's Land

    Philippe

    Nomad's land organized a horseback riding trip to accompany Kyrgyz shepherds transhumance to the grasslands. It was a wonderful experience to live with the shepherds and their families and lead the flocks of sheep, goats, cows and horses to their summer camp. It was a great way to get to know these local families a little better, and it was made possible thanks to the long-term relationship and trust built between Nomad's Land agents and these shepherds for more usual tours taking travelers the the mountains. Our guide Fabien knows the region by heart and it was fascinating to see how he can place on his very little scale map all the landscapes and mountains range and summits we could see, as well as the grasslands that we were crossing, even when there was almost no road or track ! Fluent in French, English and Russian, his Kyrgyz language abilities are also growing day by day, making him our interpret every day and making the discussions with the families so much richer and interesting. Katja, another guide who accompanied the more experienced riders, astonished me with her knowledge of Kyrgyz language and about the horses culture in Kyrgyzstan. I totally recommend Nomad's Land and I would love to come back. All trips are special and their memories dear to me, but for sure this trip was extremely beautiful and special, as well as very well organized.
