Kyrgyzstan is a country that captured my imagination with photographs of pristine valleys, crystal clear mountain lakes, powerful mountain rivers, and rich flora and fauna.

Today Kyrgyzstan is one of the few countries where a certain part of the population still practices a semi-nomadic lifestyle. Click below to read more about my adventures in Kyrgyzstan.
