Kyzylarai — the highest, the oldest

Kyzylarai was the second trip I arranged through Nomadic Travel Kazakhstan. These were two of the most worthwhile, enriching days I have experienced in Kazakhstan, giving me the opportunity to take quality, exotic photographs that I plan to exhibit in the Unites States. What impressed me most was experiencing the authentic Kazakh culture, including their amazing cuisine and hospitality. Several of the most touching moments include socializing with the locals, who were very interesting to observe. The hosts at the guesthouses were welcoming and allowed me wander around their homes and village. The people I encountered at the Kokpar sporting event, a traditional competition between two villages, were extremely genuine and friendly, allowing us to take turns riding their horses and taking photos.

The knowledgeable, English-speaking staff went far out of their way to ensure that everyone on our tour was having a great time and that everything went smoothly. The fearless drivers took us through rough and tumble roads, streams and rocky terrain, adding to the sense of adventure. The beautiful landscapes and endless dirt roads through the steppe of Central Kazakhstan creates a scenic memory that will last for years to come.

It was truly an amazing experience that would have been impossible to arrange without the help of Nomadic Travel Kazakhstan. If you are looking to get off the beaten path and experience village life in Kazakhstan, I highly recommend booking this tour. I eagerly await more trip opportunities through Nomadic Travel Kazakhstan.
