How to contact Air Kyrgyzstan in English? Is Bishkek English-speaking?  (3 Answers)

I want to know how to contact Air Kyrgyzstan in English as its web-site is not in English. Does this airline respond to international enquiries on its services? Although i have its email address air@air.kg i am not sure whether they will respond to my enquiry. Also does it have a branch office in Urumqi?

Is Bishkek an English-speaking city? How to seek direction to Air Kyrgyzstan's Head Office in Bishkek if i decided to make a debut trip to Bishkek via Urumqi?

Bishkek and Almaty in January  (4 Answers)

I've just booked flights into Almaty and out of Bishkek, and will have 9 days to spend travelling between the two. January is probably not the best time to go there, but I don't really have much choice when I can take my holidays. So, a few questions:

- any tips for surviving the sub zero temperatures?
- what does Bishkek have to offer in the winter? From reading up about it, there doesn't seem to be a huge amount to see in the city itself, and as for day trips, all the guidebooks say "head for the mountains", which might be great advice in warmer months, but what is it possible to do in January?
- 9 days might be too long to spend in just Almaty and Bishkek, but not long enough to head anywhere else...or is it? Is it worth trying to visit somewhere else in Kyrgyzstan, or should I save that for a summer trip?
- Bishkek vs. Almaty...which city offers more in winter? (I think I already know the answer to that, but maybe I'm wrong!)

Thanks

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · February 07, 2014
Skiing from Bishkek 2014

I am working in Bishkek and interested in going skiing on the weekends; either for one or two days. The cheapest way is to go to the closest resorts with a local operator, where you can get an all-inclusive package for 1,500 Som ($30) covering transport, ski rental and lift ticket. I have not yet managed to test this, as they have vehicle issues...

Better resorts are about 100 km away and one can get 4WD transport for the day for $85. The car can take up to 4 passengers; there would be additional costs for a lift pass (around 600 Som) and ski rental (600 Som).

If you are interested in sharing transport on any of the following days: 15-16/2; 22-23/2; 1-2/3; or 8-9/3; send an email to bisbjerg at attglobal.net

Who wants to be Nomads?  (6 Answers)

Hi, everyone.

Thread title is irrelevant, by the way. LOL.

Real Questions are:
1. What's the better option for a lone traveler like me who wants to travel in Kyrgyzstan for a month - Do it Yourself or a tour company? (Should be budget wise as i'm as poor as a lone tree in the desert).
2. Is it fine if I travel first to Kazakhstan then overland to Bishkek?
3. Wanna go with me?
