    Je voyage à moto en gros trail et les infos du bouquin me semblent super pertinentes; à jour et difficile à trouver ailleurs (sauf le bouquin d’Overland Aventures). La carte et les traces GPS sont un super complément. Le ton est sympa mais sérieux et les avertissements bien pensés et dosés. Je rêve de tester sur le terrain… Vivement une version Tadjikistan et Ouzbékistan 😉

    Petite pépite, à consulter sur place comme à consulter à la maison pour se donner des idées de destination. Cet ouvrage est novateur et surtout très complet dans ses propositions (coordonnés GPS, histoire, culture …). Je recommande vivement et j’ai hâte des futures nouvelles destinations.

    I bought EXPLORE KIRGHIZISTAN after reading EXPLORE LADAKH, Victor and Olivia’s first guidebook, which was already an amazing tool for offroad roadtripping. This new book is an even better edition, you get the sense that an astonishing amount of work has been delivered in writing it, and that the writers have gained a lot of experience while exploring Kirghizstan. This guide is the perfect companion for the most adventurous and authenticity-driven travelers : each useful parameter has been taken into account, the book is full of useful traveling tips, Victor and Olivia have anticipated every problem that a person may encounter during a trip in full autonomy. This book contains all the practical information you may need in order to prepare this type of roadtrip. It has multiples adresses and links to help you organize your trip before arriving, such as car and motorbike rentals, guesthouses, horseback riding itineraries, mandatory border passes etc. Each track is perfectly described, thanks to distance and altitude tracking, the satellite photos and the GPS coordinates that Victor and Olivia have gathered during their many months in Kirghizstan. The book is also very sensible to cultural, historical and environnmental issues. The writers have gathered many informations about Kirghizstan’s population, fauna et flaura, which helps you enjoy your trip every day at 200%. It is obvious that the writers are passionate abut this country and that they have fully explored it, even the most remote spots. We can’t help but want to do just the same. This guide is definitely the key to living your greatest adeventure in beautiful Kirghizstan!

On the Silk Road

Traversed by the Celestial Mountains and the famous Silk Road, Kyrgyzstan is a diverse country of wild beauty.

Peppered with dizzyingly high peaks reaching up to 7,000m, the land sprawls amongst a magnificent backdrop of green mountains, offering beautiful vistas populated by the sleek outline of horses and the white yurts typical of local nomadic tribes.

From desert steppes to wide valleys crafted by time and erosion, this small landlocked country in Central Asia is an ideal destination for an adventure off the beaten paths.

EXPLORE KYRGYZSTAN will in no way be a box standard tourist guide. Our guide has been designed for travellers searching for adventure and authentic experiences. Each and every trail in the book has been patiently explored, adventure by adventure, in the immensity of the Kyrgyz landscape.

Instead of classical stops and by-the-book itineraries, we offer our readers an original format allowing you to create your trip yourself. With a perfect knowledge of the terrain, travellers can improvise their way, guided by what they fancy or who they meet, fully independently.
