Kyzyl-Tuu Village

It is home to the traditional house of Kyrgyz nomads, Yurt, and is famous not only in Kyrgyzstan but also in the world.

Kyzyl-Tuu Village is located on the southern coast of Lake Issyk-Kul about 230km away from Bishkek.

This village is attractive to tourists interested in Kyrgyz nomadic culture. It is a village called the hometown of Yurta, a mobile house for Kyrgyzstan nomads, and is famous not only in Kyrgyzstan but also in the world.

The village has a population of about 1,800 and most of its residents are engaged in producing Yurta, a traditional Kyrgyz house. Therefore, visitors can experience everything from making Yuta parts to installing them while staying in the village.

Kiyiz Duino, a festival that shows the traditions and customs of the Kyrgyz people, is held every year and it is so popular among tourists that thousands of people participate.

The hunting experience with eagles and Taigan dog, the representative breed of Kyrgyzstan, which we only saw in the video, will be a life experience that others cannot easily experience.

There is Tuz-Kol which called a Dead Lake compared to the Dead Sea of Israel is not far from the village. The water from the Lake Issyk-Kul flows into the Tuz-Kol but there is no water path to the outside, so the salt of the lake water is maintained at nearly 70%. Why don't you experience the mysterious experience of "Lying in the Water and Reading a Book" you've only seen in pictures?
