A blind spot for the world, but everything for us
We are a couple who share the love for travelling, especially through Central Asia and Mongolia. The idea for Indy Guide was created during our travels in this region and out of passion. We fell instantly in love with the countries and the people. The nature is breathtaking, the wildlife is fascinating and the people are caring. Our goal is to show the beauty of this often forgotten part of the world and help travellers experience the heartwarming hospitality of the people here.
