Contact Kanat

Last seen 18 days ago

My name is Kanat,  I am 25 years old and married. I studied at the faculty for foreign languages then I decided to work as a guide. I've been working as a guide for 7 years in Kyrgyzstan and other nabouring stan countries.

My homeland is Kyrgyzstan, the country of snowy and beautiful mountains. My father was a shepherd so I spent my childhood in the mountain helping my parents to take care of the livestock. I know the nomadic life very well.  I am always ready to render the best service with the reasonable price to the guests. Welcome to Kyrgyzstan and try the nomadic life with us!

Very professional.


Kanat drove us from Bishkek to Osh over 3 days (a spectacular and varied drive) and was an excellent guide. His english is good and he was flexible in meeting our requests and adapting the details of itinerary to the variable mountain weather. Would definitely recommend Kanat.

We went on a three day tour with Kanat. Before the trip we organized everything by texting and Kanat responded always very fast. He was a good driver, responsible and speaks English well. Everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time in Kirgistan and we can highly recommend Kanat as a tour guide.

Elena about listing Sonkul lake and Tasch Rabat 9 months ago.

We did a 6 day tour (3 days horseback riding to song kul lake and 3 days Trekking to Ala-Kul lake) with Kanat and he did a fantastic job.

Everything went smoothly from the planing of this trip where I told him what I wanted to do and he was always very responsive. The pricing he offered was very fair.

During the trip he always wanted to offer the best service possible and tried to fulfill all our wishes.

He speaks English very well and also explains a lot about the Kyrgyz culture.

We had A great time with kanat. I would definitely book a tour with him again when traveling to Kyrgyzstan.

Stefan about listing Song Kol + Ala-kul trekking 10 months ago.

Everything went smoothly, thanks a lot! though I lost my baggage at Manas airport, he helped to monitor / contacted the hostel to check if the baggage deliver & keep in the hostel.

Kanat is a good guide, speaks English well. If I come back again to Kyrgyzstan I will use his services.


Kanat was the best guide we could have wished for. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and made sure that we had a great time during our trip. He first took us horseback riding for three days and then for a two day hike, both of which we enjoyed a lot. He knew a lot about the region and adjusted the trips according to our personal needs - we would most definetly recommend him.

Sophie about listing 3 day horse tour 10 months ago.

We are 100% satisfied with Kanat's service during our 5-day trip in Kyrgyzstan. Kanat is a young, energic, knowledgable and experienced driver, who speaks surprisingly good English (not just functional English, he can actually discuss many topics with you in certain depth).

He has a can-do attitude and would help you to fulfill your plans even if they might be changing from time to time.

I will recommend Kanat to all my friends who are planning to visit Kyrgyzstan.

Very nice trip around the lakes of Issyk-kul and Songkol. Guide - Kanat was waiting for us at the airport as agreed. We spent 6 wonderful days together in Kyrgyzstan. Everything was ok. We discovered the beauty of nature (lakes, mountains), we met friendly and interesting people, we spent the night in a yurt, we rode a horse and admired the power of the eagle while hunting. Everything was great and will remain in our memories. We took many pictures. Soon Bartek will make a movie from our trip. Thank you very much Kanat for your company and commitment. Greetings from Poland.

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!

Missing Regula

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!!!
