Brief description: Kyrgyzstan is one of the unique places where you can combine impressive ski adventures and culture exploring. As a country where 94% of the territory is mountainous, and where the population is semi-nomad, Kyrgyzstan has a lot to offer to explorers seeking an enriching cultural experience in this exceptional mountainous setting.
Suusamyr is a colossal mountain range with a gorgeous virgin snow! Suusamyr’s powder is formed at very low temperatures that can go down to -35 degrees Celsius at night and the snow depth can grow up to 2 meters. The variety of the terrain and altitude of Suusamyr Too can easily offer an experience that will fulfill your desires.
