Looking For Something?


Here we are trying to establish an online Kyrgyzstan resource page. We’ll start with links to things we like and see where it leads us.

Videos, articles, photos on this page are not our own. We are not trying to advertise here, we just want to show cool people doing cool stuff in Kyrgyzstan and Central Asia.

If you have suggestions, something to contribute, or see something of yours here; please contact us on info@tengriexpeditions.com
