Clothes and equipment

Take whatever you like but remember that our trip will start in Bishkek, where the temperature may go up to 45 C. By contrast, the horse-riding part is at the altitude of 3000 m., where the temperature can go below 10C in the night. Therefore, you should be prepared to all weather conditions. As to the dress-code remember that Kyrgyzstan is a mild Muslim country (so, please, no minis, guys))).


1. Rain-coat
2. Sweater/fleece
3. Wind-stopper
4. Enough t-shirts and other underwear (think of taking sth with long sleeves to avoid sunburns)
5. Hat (remember the sun can be violent)
6. Sun-screen cream (30 or higher)
7. Insect repellent (skin + clothes)
8. Good trekking boots for easy hikes in the mountains.
9. Walking shoes (dont need heavy ones) for the city walks
10. Personal first aid kit (most likely problems: blisters, sunburns, allergy, diarrhoea, sore muscles after hikes. Take painkillers, anti-histaminic, antibiotics of general action, and anything you need for your usual medical conditions).
11. Personal hygiene kit (disinfection gel is highly recommended) + some toilet paper.
12. A small towel
13. A flask for water (at least 2 litres), which should be easily accessible when you hike. Though you get normal 0,5 bottles of water, in the mountains you may want something more solid.
14. Swimming suit (for Issyk-Kul)
15. Gloves (for sleeping at 3000m above sea level, if you are sensible to low temperatures or sun).
16. Sleeping bag and Slippers for yurts
17. Sunglasses
18. Photo camera 
19. Leggings for sleeping in yurts
20. Notepad and a pen to make notes as you travel
21. A smaller backpack, except for your normal suitcase.
22. Flash light (torch)
23. You may want to have a small walking stick, if you are going on a hike it is up to you.
24. Hygienic lipstick for the trekking part.
