    • Is This Tour For You?

      Our Song-Kol Weekend Getaway tour is a wonderful way to get away from it all.  Because of its location high in the mountains, there is no WIFI or cell service making this tour a perfect short-term technology detox.   Tenti does our best to make sure our clients are comfortable, but this is still a camping tour, in a traditional yurt, so the accommodations are rustic with outhouses and camp beds.  At night, even in the height of summer, it can get chilly so we recommend packing some wooly socks and a comfy sweater.  The horseback riding portion of this tour is great for beginners.  The guides will walk you through how to control your horse as you ride through the valley.  If this sounds like a part of Kyrgyzstan you’d like to experience, join us for this yurt stay weekend in the heart of the Kyrgyz mountains.
