By the will of fate Kazakh people were spaced at the crossroad of Eastern and Western cultures, and that is why Kazakhstan is country of rich cultural heritage.

As you know, familiarity with the culture and traditions of a country begins with an introduction to its national cuisine. The same holds for Kazakhstan: there is no better way of understanding the Kazakh traditional culture, than a gastronomic experience, consisting of cooking  traditional dishes yourself and get acquainted with the secrets of traditional culinary arts, that you will acquire during this tour.

You will also have unique opportunity to participate in the process of manufacturing of a very ancient Kazakh musical instrument, an authentic value and heritage of the Great Steppe - ‘sazsyrnay’.

Neither of stories about the Great Kazakh steppe and nomadic people do without the yurt - a traditional dwelling of the nomads. Since ancient times methods and secrets of yurt construction, requiring special skills and knowledge passed down from generation to generation. And during this program you will be able personally touch the construction process of wooden walls – ‘kerege’, the traditional raising of the dome – ‘Shanyrak’, as well as the strengthening of wooden poles – ‘uyk’.
