Jailoo tourism. Interesting, isn't it?
This is a relative recent type of tourism that has taken shape in Kyrgyzstan. It is the one you will have to learn about if you choose this scenario.
In the scenario, you will see several natural treasures of Almaty region in Kazakhstan - the places where your tour will start on the first day and end on the sixth day.
No more megacities, modern technologies and people rushing around all the time! Lakes, canyons, gorges - real solitude with majestic and beautiful nature.
The main feature of this type of extreme tourism is opportunity to be practically in the place of nomads, learning their culture and way of life.
So, what are you going to do?
  1. You will get to some of the most remote places which are almost untouched by civilization.
  2. There will be no electricity, and maybe even cell phone service in some places!
  3. You'll have a chance to interact with the locals and learn the country's history "first-hand".

The tour is a 'ring' and you will travel by car to various points. Having a car will help you get around the country a lot quicker, as there aren't many places to visit.
