At-Bashy to Kol Suu Transhumance

La trashumancia de At-Bashy a Kol Suu con un pastor kirguís

¿Buscas una aventura? En Nomad's Land nos encanta organizar viajes únicos, en la más estrecha colaboración posible con las familias locales.

Desde finales de abril hasta principios de junio, los pastores kirguisos abandonan sus aldeas para ir al Jailoo (pastizal), con sus familias, ganado, yurta, muebles y básicamente todo. Es una época de fiesta para las familias y los pueblos vuelven a la vida tras los gélidos meses de invierno. Este año, te proponemos que te unas a este acontecimiento y participes en la mudanza al Jailoo con una familia del pueblo de At-Bashy a su Jailoo en Kok Kyia, junto al lago Kel Suu.   Programa (muy probablemente se modificará debido al "factor pastor'): Día 1: Bishkek - At Bashy, Salimos de Bishkek en transporte público para llegar al pueblo de At-Bashy, en la región de Naryn. Una vez allí, nos reunimos con Meder y su familia en su casa, donde nos alojamos por la noche. Día 2 - Día 5: Preparamos los últimos bártulos, ensillamos los caballos y salimos del pueblo junto con el ganado. Durante estos 5 días, cabalgamos unos 120 km y pasamos por paisajes maravillosos, bosques de pinos, puertos de alta montaña y estepas desoladas, junto con el ganado constituido por unas 200 ovejas, caballos y vacas. Todas las noches montamos el campamento, encendemos un fuego, cenamos y dormimos en tiendas. Al final de la trashumancia, llegamos al Jailoo junto al lago Kel Suu. Día 6: Hoy puede descansar o ir andando al lago Kel Suu (2hrs), uno de los paisajes más impresionantes que verá en Kirguizistán. Día 7: Volvemos al pueblo de At Bashi en el camión (comodidad limitada). Noche en el pueblo At Bashy. Día 8: Regreso a Bishkek en transporte público, después de este viaje único y increíble en el corazón de la cultura nómada kirguisa.

1 week of exploration around Kel-Suu at the top, despite the vagaries of the weather. We can only salute the seriousness and professionalism of the agency. Easy contact, team attentive. In addition to being able to discover a place that is difficult to access for independent hikers - and absolutely superb - we also took a real pleasure in getting into Kyrgyz culture more deeply. A big thank you to our great guide for having motivated us whatever the circumstances, inventing new recipes based on kurut and allowing us to better understand the country. We hope to be able to leave with Nomad’s Land as soon as possible!


With the help of Nomad's Land we had one of the most unforgettable trips of our lives this winter. Starting in Bishkek we headed east towards Karakol where our adventure was set to start. We spent 10 days exploring the region surrounding Issyk Kul and Song-Kul, crossing valleys, streams and mountains on horseback with our wonderful guide Mikel. The experiences we had during our trip would not have been possible without the network and organization of Nomad's Land. Within a week of our trip ending we have already started to look at the other trips they have to offer and will definitely travel with them again in the future. While traveling in the winter is not always the easiest, the trip we had was certainly rewarding. If you are up for the challenge, Kyrgyzstan in the winter is a special experience that more people should consider!
