    10 days of ski touring in Kyrgyzstan with New Year in the yurt. A top stay with Nomad's land which made us discover and love a little known country. 3 ski touring spots with abundant snow, perfect weather and plenty of unexpected discoveries during the stay.


    Dear Nomad's Land - especially Alex Johnson. You have helped us during preparation of our trip, arranging border zone permits, transportation to mountains, advise in arranging maps and also being a contact person in case of emergency. We had arranged most stuff over internet beforehand. It was generally very helpful and I would recommend to our friends Nomad's Land for tracking in Kyrgistan. And there is so much to see in that country yet. It would be great to visit Kyrgistan again. Thank you.
