My terrific 10-day tour throughout the Kyrgyzstan unfortunately had come to an end and I went back to Moscow, but just a day before I woke up in my sleeping bag inside of a cold yurt, which was placed right on the cold ground, and outside temperature was below zero and it snow was everywhere. Closest civilization outpost was at least hundred kilometers away. There was no connection with the outside world, it’s just you and wild nature. Last days we’ve lived in one of the most incredible hotels of all at the height of 3000 meters. Almost every day I took shower in water, that bites you harder than dog’s teeth, climbed atop hills and mountains, and shot gigabytes of amazing photos. And here is my report about it.
Every day we stood up a little bit earlier than before, and definitely than I used to get around – first at 5 AM, then at 3 AM or even at 1:30 AM. Still sleepy, we crawled into our buses and drove to different places, canyons and valleys. During the all expedition we enjoyed the view of Celestial Mountains, which are called Tien Shan in Chinese.
We’ve been around Karakol authentic bazaar, where you can buy totally useless things or assemble Moskvitch 412 (extremely old car).
Special thanks to every member of that photo tour and our guides, who took care and guided us all the way.
