Aug 22, 2017 - A night in a yurt caravanserai at 10,000 feet

The next step gave a real idea of life on the high mountain steppes separating Central Asia from western China. The road rose from 3,000 feet to 10,000, occasionally 12,000 feet with the inevitable impact on breathing, to sunlit uplands where the nomadic Kyrgyzs continue a way of life typical of tough animal herders in many of the Stans. Daily life involves moving their animals and yurt homes every so often for pastures new across the grass plains in what is often bitterly cold (down to -54 degrees), or sweltering summer temperatures and...

May 22, 2006 - Naryn

May 23, 2005 - For Every End There is a New Beginning

Depart: Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan Arrive: Naryn, Kyrgyzstan Overnight: Yurt Camp - We set off in the morning saying our goodbyes to Norman, Jen, Sharyn and Mike. I do hope that many of our paths will cross again. Of course I shall meet Jen back in London but the July 7th seems very far away right now. She now faces a solo trip through Kazakhstan and Russia, before meeting up with her sister in Estonia and then flying back to London at the end of June. - We were supposed to have seven new recruits, but one of them, Debbie, had her flight from...
