The UAZ Hunter started life called the UAZ 469 and served in the Soviet millitary starting in 1971! Still in production today as the UAZ Hunter, they are rugged, bouncy (the nickname in Russian translates as "Little Goat"), and have a personality all their own. While the Kalashnikov is not included with this rental, but rest of the personality is. In 10 days you can explore much of the wilds of Kyrgyzstan. We highly recommend that you see Song Kul, Kyzyl Oi, Tosor, and Barskoon while you are out exploring in your UAZ. But if you don't know where you want to go, don't worry, we'll help you sort it out.
Just so you know, the Hunter is so high tech, the windows don't even roll down, they slide side to side!
