  • Let's Wander Kyrgyzstan!

    Issyk-kul is Kyrgystan's premier winter excursion destination and Jyrgalan valley, with its beautiful peaks and pristine powder, is the top spot for winter sports in the region. Jyrgalan's unique micro-climate, created by its seven mountains and elevation (2300m), protects visitors to this area from the weather extremes that plague other winter getaway destinations. Take advantage of this winter paradise while Tenti takes care of the logistics. Jyrgalan has something for everyone with winter sports for people of every level. From our partner's guesthouse you can head out on a variety of adventures including, back and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and horseback riding. When you're done with your days activities head back to the guesthouse for a hearty meal with the rest of your group.
