Kyrgyzstan has become the center of winter ski vacation in Central Asia.





Thanks to wonderful climatic conditions, abundant snow, pistes suitable for both amateurs and professionals and excellent service provided by ski resorts Kyrgyzstan has become the center of winter ski vacation in Central Asia. The number of tourists visiting Kyrgyzstan for skiing is dramatically increasing from year to year.

There are more than ten ski resorts which provide full package services for visitors. The best known are Karakol, ZiL, Orlovka, Too Ashu and Chunkurchak ski resorts.

Off-piste lovers can enjoy the untouched slopes of the mighty Tien Shan mountains. Horseback and snowmobile transfers to freeride terrains are available. Popular destinations are Karakol, Jergalan, Suusamyr, and Arslanbob.

Another form of freeride in Kyrgyzstan popular among extreme skiers and snowboarders is heliski. Reaching a mountain peak over 4000 meters above sea level by a helicopter and skiing down from it over untouched slopes is truly a thrilling experience.

Ski season starts in December and lasts till the end of March.

Thank you for visiting us!

President of Kyrgyz Republic -

President of the Kyrgyz Republic-

The flag of Kyrgyz Republic was adopted on 3 March 1992 by the Supreme Council of Kyrgyzstan. It consists of a red field with a yellow sun in the center having 40 uniformly spaced rays. In the center of the sun is a red ring crossed by two sets of three lines, a stylized representation of the “tunduk” (Kyrgyz:түндүк) or crown of the traditional Kyrgyz yurt, a symbol replicated in many facets of Kyrgyz architecture.

The red background of the flag symbolizes bravery and valor, the sun represents peace and wealth, and the “tunduk” signifies the family home or, by extension, the universe. According to popular interpretations the sun's 40 rays represent the 40 Kyrgyz tribes.
National Emblem of the Kyrgyz Republic
The coat of arms of the Kyrgyz Republic was adopted on 14 January 1994 by the Resolution of the Jogorku Kenesh (Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic). The emblem has a circular form which mostly bears the color blue. Light blue is known as the Kyrgyz color of courage and generosity. To the left and right of the coat of arms, wheat and cotton are displayed. In the upper and bottom part, the name of the country appears in Kyrgyz Republic.

In the middle, the Tian-Shan mountains are displayed, below which fields are shown. Behind the mountain panorama, one sees a rising sun. A bird beating its wings stands under this panorama, which gives the impression that the panorama lies on the shoulders of the bird.
