Stunningly illustrated with a clear overview of historical, cultural and social aspects, this third edition of Odyssey's popular guide to Kyrgyzstan provides fresh information on both southwestern Issyk Kul and northeast Naryn provinces as well as expanded Jalalabad province, Osh and Talas sections (including trekking by foot or horseback in the Chatkal valley to Sary Chelek). Whether exploring grass-roots accommodation of local nomadic families or mountainous adventures in the mighty Tien Shan range, this guide offers unparalleled insight into Kyrgyzstan's tremendous scenic beauty and diversity.It covers: historical and contemporary aspects of this fascinating, little-known land; new areas for trekking and mountaineering; and, sights and activities in each area to appeal to all interests. It includes: a practical Kyrgyz- and Russian-language guide with Cyrillic alphabet; essential tips for accommodation; useful websites; and, outstanding colour photography.
