Kyrgyzstan has been on top of my travel bucket list for quite some time, and in September 2022 it was finally time to go! I’ve been looking forward so long, ever since I opened up my Lonely Planet table book, covering a spread on all countries in the world. Kyrgyzstan was the main country to stand out for me. I can say, it was exactly as I imagined it. There is a whole lot of nothing, but everything is so insanely beautiful. The wide and open landscapes, the wild horses galloping around, the beautiful mountain lakes and the mountains.
During the trip, we visited places such as the Son Kul Lake, Kel-Suu Lake, Tash Rabat and the Panda Pass, Jeti Oguz and hiked towards the Ala-Kul Lake on a 4-day hiking trip. More Kyrgyzstan impressions and information will follow, however, first I’ll share a guide on Kyrgyzstan in 15 pictures. Curious to hear whether it is on your bucket list now! If it is, we have done our trip with Journal of Nomads.
The Canadian Rockies, any nature enthusiast will love it. With national parks such as Jasper and Banff and the famous Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, it is one of the most famous places in the world to explore nature. Check out my favourite 15 pictures of my trip.
