Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Kyrgyzstan is in Central Asia and used to be part of the former Soviet Union until 1991. Most people travel to Kyrgyzstan to see its beautiful mountains. There are so many wonderful ways to see Kyrgyzstan, most notable by bike. It’s very popular for long distance biking as well as snowboarding in the winter. As something special, why not try seeing the country on horseback with a guide to assist you? If all this sounds a bit too hurried for your pace, why not take a relaxing yurt break or roam around the bazaars at a leisurely pace and snap up some bargains to bring back with you. Once you’re done with that, you can cool down in the mountain lake of Issyk Kul.
Advice for Travellers to all Destinations

Kyrgyzstan is mountainous and some parts are situated higher than 2500m, so altitude sickness could be a problem. You can obtain altitude sickness medication and practice appropriate acclimatisation and gradual ascents to counter altitude sickness.

Our travel nurse will be able to discuss these with you and offer you the relevant advice.
The weather in Kyrgyzstan changes depending on the region you are in. Please make sure to check the weather for the period you are travelling, as you will need to pack adequately and take reasonable precautions for the climate here.
Safe tap water in Kyrgyzstan varies depending on where you are. Ask where you are staying or better still stick to bottled water and always check the water that food has been washed in. As an extra precaution, take some water purifying tablets with you or some kind of water purification system.
If you’re a vegetarian life may be a little tough for you here. It is meat, meat and more meat in Kyrgyzstan so come prepared. Generally tea is enjoyed after meals and sometimes prayers are said/shown after eating.
