Introduction

26 Jun 2000  thru   21 Aug 2000



If you like generous people, fresh food and water, beautiful mountains, rural life and adventure, Krygyzstan is the place for you. The average height of this country is over 2500 meters and it breeds a hearty and fun loving people.

South of Kryrgzstan, across the Pamirs, lies Tajikistan and Afghanistan. East, across the Tien Shan, lies the western most reaches of China and Tibet. To the north, across the Alatoo range, lies Kasakstan. To the west, across the Fergana range, lies Uzbekistan. Kryrgzstan is half way around the world from the Uninted States, fairly remote and hard to get to.

Je suis tombee en amour avec le Kyrgyzstan et nous esperons vous partager notre nouvelle passion. C'est un tout petit pays situe au coeur des montagnes. Ses voisins sont la Chine a l'Est, le Kazakstan au nord, l'Uzbekistan a l'Ouest et le Tadjikistan au Sud.

L'ancienne route de la soie traversait ce petits pays peuple de nomades. En 1918, cette petite republique s'est retrouvee un satellite de la nouvelle URSS. Depuis son independance, plusieurs difficultes economiques l'ont assaille. Diverses ONG tentent d'y attirer les dollars touristiques en encourageant la preservation de la culture et des traditions Kyrgyzes.
