Traveling by private or rented car in the Kyrgyz Republic is an excellent choice for family people and those who are not used to walking a lot and bothering themselves with excessive physical exertion. If you have an off-road vehicle at your disposal, ready to drive over rough terrain and dirt roads, you can see a lot of interesting things.


Almost every highway in the republic is rich in picturesque mountain views with sheer cliffs, magnificent waterfalls and rivers.
