Looking for travel fellows: Nomadic / Cultural Trip

Hi everyone,
I'm Anisa from Malaysia. I'll be travelling to Kyrgyzstan to attend a 3 days study tour from 10 - 12 of October 2017. After the conclusion of my study tour, I will then have a free time between 13 - 16 October 2017 and will be flying back to Malaysia on 17.10.2017.

Hence, I am very much interested to explore Kyrgyzstan especially to experience the nomadic culture of the people here. I am a bit athletic -- so I can handle a bit of trekking or even horseridng (but not the extreme ones). I'm very much interested in staying in yurts!

To this, I would be very grateful if there is anyone that travels on that particular days as well to contact me. So that maybe we could exchange our plans or if your trips sounds more interesting; I'd be open to join you guys as well or etc.

Thank you so much. Hope to hear response from all of you.

First of all, thank you so much to everyone that answered my question and being patient through all that. Secondly, I have just been informed that due to the upcoming election in Kyrgyzstan in October -- my study tour have to be rescheduled to be in December (or at a later date that still has not been confirmed yet). This is due to the fact that my study tour involves getting permit from the authorities (the SSEP in particular).


As such, I am terribly sorry if I have inconvenienced anyone in any way. Your replies and answers are very much appreciated.


Again, thank you so much to everyone that has contacted me. I deeply regret that I could not come to Kyrgyz much sooner
