Written by

Ulak-Tartysh is the king of traditional games, dating from ancient times when horse-riding ability was an essential part of a nomad’s dignity and a swift horse was a sure sign of wealth. Like football with a goat instead of a ball, each team of up to 10 players tries to put a headless goat carcass into a goal, while the other team tries to prevent them.  The winners give the goat to a village house of their choice, and are in turn invited in.

Arkan tartysh (rope pulling)

Written by

Arkant tartysh is one of the games Kyrgyz people enjoy playing. The word arkan means a rope and tartysh means dragging or puling. In the past, nomads used to test the men of the region with this game. The team consisting of 5 strong men from one tribe competes with other five men from another tribe. As the word start goes, they start pulling the rope to their direction. A team who pulls the opponent to their line will get the point. 

Discover the beauty of the  Alay valley the way locals do on horseback or on foot. The feeling of adventure is mirrored by the impressive landscape; green hills and snowy peaks layered over each other to create a spectacular scene with only the grazing sheep to remind you that this is Earth.  At the highest peak of the mountain passes, the snow blows all around, impressing on you the ruggedness of such a remote land. The hand waving of nomads and children shouting “Hello” is the essence of Alay valley. Camp with Kyrgyz families who spend their summers tending to and protecting their herds.Help locals in making traditional bread and cheese. Follow ancient trails as you move from jailoo to jailoo. Your surefooted horses find their way along wild river gorges and up winding passes through the rocky landscape. Summer is a time for fun, and you can join the cheers of the local people of Alay who gather for popular horse riding games on Sundays. People come from miles around to show off their riding skills and buy and sell locally produced kymyz, fermented horse’s milk and slightly alcoholic. Choose between the privacy of your own tent or stay in a comfortable shepherd’s yurts.
