Kach Solo Travels in 2019: Exploring KYRGYZSTAN with Destination Pamir 🚘❤️
After being in the Pamir mountains for a week, it feels quite different being back on the city and this time in Osh, south of Kyrgyzstan.
It’s really warm here so I asked my guide, Erali, if I’m still required to cover myself since it’s a Muslim country but he told me it’s okay and they are more modern and I will not have a problem.🙏🏽
I arrived in the afternoon of June 18 after driving for 420kms from Murghab, Tajikistan.. I ended up just catching with a lot of coaching client calls and letters so didn’t go out that night..but the next day morning, my tour guide picked me up at 8am with a shiny Land-cruiser to explore the city. 🚘
The tour company who organized my itinerary is owned by a 28 year old Kyrg guy.. he was a tour guide and decided to start his own start up company to give his 1 year old girl a better life.. argh, love hanging out with people who have big dreams! 😍
He’s going with me and the driver (who is his cousin) on my private road trip from Osh to Bishkek with stops in Uzgen for Munara Tower, Sary Chelek, Toktogul City, Burana Tower, Song Kul Lake for horseriding and Ysyk-Kul Lake for Eagle show hunting 😍
For my full day of tour in Osh, they brought me to the UNESCO world heritage site of Sulaiman-Too Mountain and the museum... it also has a beautiful 360 degree view of the city. It’s quite steep to walk up but really worth it to see!
Then we had lunch, they love eating kebabs here so I had a really nice meat dish.. I know I could be adventurous with food but really trying to limit meat nowadays and now only eating beef and chicken.. hopefully I could remove them as well in the future! haha 😋👌
Then we went to their big Bazaar - for bread, nuts, meat, fresh produce, clothes and all supplies you can imagine.. I bought a headscarf and other personal things that I could use for the rest of trip 🤩 They popularly sell this marble shape cheese and their different design breads.. I think if you visit Osh then you should check out their market 👌
When I returned to my guesthouse, all my dirty clothes are washed and now hanging to dry.. I actually just asked the owner prior to leaving on where I can wash my clothes then it’s all done when I got back! haha! Unbelievable hospitality.. ❤️
