Kyrgyzstan is the true center of Jailoo tourism.
When summer comes, thousands of Kyrgyz herders in different parts of the country migrate with their livestock to high summer pastures called Jailoo. It is a centuries-old tradition that is still regularly practiced in Kyrgyzstan. The families set up a yurt (known as a boz ui) and stay in the high pastures until early October. Go on a Jailoo journey. It gives you the full experience of ancient Kyrgyz nomadic culture. In Jailoo, travelers have the opportunity to sip a cup of kumys (fermented mare’s milk), have beshbarmak, the famous Kyrgyz national dish for dinner, and trek in the beautiful landscapes. Or go for a ride on a horse. Nights in Jailoo are surprisingly calm and serene. Unfortunately, due to its remoteness, Jailoo vacation days are not recommended for travelers with poor health or with young children.
