During the trip you will stop for breakfast and lunch at the restaurants on the side of the road. Drive to camp takes around 15-17 hours.

Camps & Accommodation

Camps in Kyrgyzstan are located at 10,000 feet (3,000 m). They are wooden structures, trailer lodges and sometimes traditional Asian yurts. They are warm, clean and comfortable with separate areas for dining, bathing and sleeping and have electrical generation. You will find a good food and a quality service. Our cook pre-pares local, European, and Korean meals. Every camp is equipped with a satellite-phone or radio station, and there is every-thing for first medical aid.

Hunting

Season is from September to February. In the morning you load onto your horse. In Kyrgyzstan you may have horses and jeep. During the day you may travel the upper edges of the mountains, glassing the hillsides and feeding areas. Sheep will normally be sighted each day. For lunch in the field we offer you hot drinks, sand-wiches, salami, dry fruit and nuts. Once the trophy ram is located, you complete your stalk on foot. You will hunt at around 13,000 feet (4,000 m). Physical condition is a factor on the stalking por-tion of the hunt. A long range shooting, up to 500 yards (450 m) is normal for sheep hunting. Spike camp and horse back riding is a part of your hunt.
