Bishkek, a city caught in time. Kyrgyzstan is right in the middle of the ancient and well known "Silk Road". Once conquered and controlled by the infamous Genghis Khan, this little central asia country was also a former Soviet Republic.
From hunting, to incredible mountain climbing, to world archeological sites, from asian themed and russian influenced shopping experiences, there is something here for everyone.
Sitting right in the midst of it all, near central Bishkek, close to shopping and all the top attractions, we had an UNBELIEVABLE experience and staying in this cozy warm and welcoming Guest House really topped it off. I would go back here in a heart beat! This was my second time staying at Shumkar Asia and this time we took our two children (1 year old and 5 year old). The staff was incredible, friendly, helpful and welcoming. The owner even stopped by and greeted us and welcomed us to his Guest House.
Enjoy a different experience but with a feel of western hospitality and all at an unbelievable price tag. We paid $45US a night for a room big enough for all 4 of us with living room area, bedroom and full bath. It was great!
We hope you go and have as much fun as we did!
