I had a great time with Kanat for five days. I contacted him several months in advance to plan my trip and he was very quick and informative in replying to all my requests, and the information provided was in full compliance with the services rendered later.

Kanat has a wealth of skill with horses and shared his experience with me. He taught me how to ride. He loves his animals and he is an amazing and probably the best horse rider! During the horseback riding tour we stopped in several yurts and tasted local cuisine and tradition. He spent his childhood in Songkol Lake and in the near valleys so he knows perfectly the territory and the nomads. He speaks well English and can answer any questions about Kirghizistan. He helped me organize transport from and to airport and also drived me to Ala Archa. He has a comfortable car 4wd with AC and he is a perfect driver.

I’m feeling very happy with this trip and have great impressions about it! The price for services is also reasonable.

He was the best horseman I could have and I can absolutely recommended Kanat!

I spent 3 unforgettable days around lake Song-Kol with Kanat as my guide. He knows the area like the back of his hand, having spent most of his summers up on the jailoos. Thanks to the carefully selected route, I could experience different aspects of this stunning nature, he took me to see Kyrgyz riding games (ulak-tartysh) and I even had the honour to meet his family on the jailoo. He was helpful, attentive and responsible as a guide, he treats the horses well and with his encouraging and calm nature, he even helped me to improve my riding skills. Thanks to his good English (he is also learning French and German!) he was able to answer all my curious questions and gave great insight into Kyrgyz culture. Also, he helped me organize accommodation and transport before and after the tour. And last but not least: be ready to play football and volleyball with him and the kids outside the yurts in the evenings! Chong rakhmat, it was absolutely amazing!!!


Kanat is the son of Song-Kul lake. He is friendly, kind and a very helpful guide. No need to say but he is a excellent horse rider and he knows his job very well. The tour went on perfectly... Thank you Kanat. I defenetly recomend to discover Kyrgystan with him!

Me and my husband hired Kanat for a 3 day tour in lake Song Kul. Kanat is a very experienced tour guide who is able to cater a travel to suit our needs. Not only everything was perfect, Kanat did his best to make the trip a memorable one. His tour is definitely the most eye-opening, adventurous and stunning journey. It was the best decision to hire him as our guide. We will definitely have him as our guide again when we visit Kyrgyzstan.
