Kyrgyzstan – A Semi-Nomadic Experience

Do you ever wonder how life is Kyrgyztan or what a nomadic lifestyle is all about? When you visit Kyrgyztan you would be able to experience first-hand how nomads are very particular with their lifestyle. And in this article, we are going to share with you a glimpse of the semi-nomadic experience we’ve had in this beautiful country.


The Kyrgyz material life is still firmly focused on farming; creation of clothing, food and homes which are the highlights of nomadism. The wanderer Kyrgyz live on the fields close to waterways in summer and move to mountain inclines with a radiant presentation in winter.


 The settled Kyrgyz generally live in level roofed square mud houses with windows and bay windows. The roaming Kyrgyz of Kizilsu eat their animal groups on low-lying prairie fields in the region of streams throughout the late spring months, at that point migrate to higher mountain territory throughout the winter, as the higher mountain slants offer more presentation to the warming beams of the sun during winter.


The eating routine of the Kyrgyz herders primarily comprises animal byproducts, with certain cabbages, onions and potatoes. They drink goat’s milk, yogurt and tea with milk and salt. Rich herders predominantly drink dairy animals’ milk and eat hamburger, sheep, pony and camel meat, wheat flour and rice. They store spread in dried sheep or cows stomachs. All flatware is made of wood.


The tents are made of felt, Those that are not yurts are commonly square fit as a fiddle with an edge and fencing made with red willow stakes. The tent edge is first secured with a tangle of grass and afterward a felt covering with a one-meter-square bay window, to which a mobile felt spread is connected. The tent is secured with thick ropes to keep it consistent in solid breezes and blizzards. Kyrgyz pioneers, interestingly, live in level roofed square mud houses with windows and lookout windows, and make their living as ranchers.

Overall, the Kyrgyz have been nomads since time immemorial. Many locals tend sheep, cows, horses, and many other animals especially in the highlands. Shepherds riding a horse, with lean canines running alongside them, live in yurts and move their creatures between valleys in the winter and mountain pastures in the spring. One wanderer told the New York Times, “This will consistently be Kyrgyzstan. That implies individuals will in every case live in the mountains, consistently have ponies, and consistently deal with animals. It’s what our identity is and what we do.”
