The Nature is our temple, every creature and every plant sacred! Active and cleansing vacations with professional accompaniment in the Pamirs!
The Pamir Mountains is the second highest mountain range on earth. The Tajiks call it „Bam-I-Danja,“ which means something like the roof of the world. The name Pamir may come from the Sanskrit word „upameru“ (near Mount Meru, the world mountain in the center of the universe) or from the Persian „Paye mihr“ (at the feet of Mithra, in the Persian Empire and in India Mithra is a major god, the God of the law)! We invite you to experience one of the most picturesque places in the country - southern Kyrgyzstan. South Kyrgyzstan is geographically isolated from the rest of the Nation‘s regions by severe mountain ranges, occupying the southeastern section of the Fergana valley. This was the ancient center of Central Asian sedentary culture in ancient times. This region is unique, with its natural conditions and mosaic of landscapes. Southern Kyrgyzstan’s nature is fascinating and distinctive in any season of the year. In spring, you can see unusually beautiful mountains and ridges, and walnut forests in bloom. In summer, the original colors of the desert in some areas makes it look like the Sahara. The yurt (yourt, yurta), a nomad‘s tent made of felt, has been the traditional abode of the nomads of Central Asia from ancient times to the modern day. The latticework wall of the yurt consists of a few sections, called „keraga“. The Spherical roof is made of long poles („uuk“), one end of which are fastened to the wall of the yurt and the other end stuck in a hole in a large wooden circle that forms the cupola of the yurt. From the outside, the yurt is covered with felt, or mats, fixed to the yurt by wide strips of carpet, called „bou“ or „boshkur“. In the center of the yurt, a fireplace is located with a tripod to hold cooking pots. A hole for light and smoke is left open in the cupola. On cold or rainy days, the top hole is shut tightly with a piece of felt, which prevents wind and precipitation from entering. Interior walls are decorated with straw mats.. In wintertime, Kyrgyz affix 2-3 rows of straw mats to the walls, and the space between them is stuffed with straw. The floor is covered with carpets and sheepskins. Poor people could not afford expensive yurts, and they built primitive huts, called „kappa“, round or rectangular in form. In those huts they survived the winter. Later, clay huts with reed roofs, or „chubtora“ appeared
The city Osh is the second largest city in Kyrgyzstan, one of the oldest cities in Central Asia, 3000 years old, about the age of Rome. Proof of this is the „four-headed sacred Suleiman Mountain“ in the city center. It has characters and settlement remnants of the Iron Age on the south side of the hillside. In the 10th century Osh was the third city in the Fergana valley and an important place on the Great Silk Road, which led to China, India and Afghanistan. In the 13th century, during the invasion of the Mongols, the city was destroyed, but later rebuilt. Visit to the bazaar in Osh, who needs shopping malls? ... see, hear, smell, taste ... In the many narrow paths between the fruit stands, vegetable displays, spices, clothes, felts and smartphone accessories you can get lost quickly. It is traded on every corner and it seems hectic, but the people are calm, serene and laid back.
Some traders sit comfortably in a corner and drink tea while others play chess. Spices of the Orient, fragrant apples from the fertile Ferghana Valley. Russian detergents, international shampoo brands, you will find everything for everyday use. The bazaar in Osh is one of the largest in Central Asia. Such an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and oriental colors is rarely seen!
The flair of the Pamir and Silk Road hovers over and in everything
Until the 14th century, Suleiman Hill was called Bara-Kukh (beautiful mountain). „Taakht-i-Suleiman“ (the throne of Suleiman or Solomon) is the name given to the mountain when the Muslim prophet Suleiman (Salomon) was buried there. For several centuries the mountain was known as a mecca for Muslims, attracting thousands of pilgrims. Khan Babur built a small house on one of the peaks in the 14th century and enjoyed the beautiful panorama of Osh and the mountains from there. In the cellar vaults of the mountain tourists often visit the historical museum.
The Pamir Highway is considered one of the most spectacular and adventurous dream pists in the world. Over a distance of 1252 kilometers, it connects the city of Osh with Chorugh in the Tajik region of Berg-Badakhshan and the Tajik capital Dushanbe. On the Silk Road, the intellectual and cultural link between Europe and Asia, from Sarytash to Sary Mogul ... On the Silk Road silk was traded mainly in western, wool, gold and silver in eastern direction. But not only merchants, scholars and armies traveled on it, but also ideas, religions and whole cultures came from East to West and vice versa. On the Silk Road came Nestorianism and Buddhism from India to China.
