several yuks are set up on the grass in front of some water and mountains
Lakeside Yurts
Central Asia is a unique part of the world, where traditional nomadic life thrives. All along the shores of Song-Kul, a remote alpine lake in Kyrgyzstan, you can find evidence of this in the plethora of yurt camps that are only open half the year. Even in high season, weather in this region is unpredictable. But all year round, the scenery more than makes up for any discomfort or difficulty in getting there.
the mountains are covered with snow and clouds in the distance is an empty field that has no grass on it
Pamir Highway Roadtrip
Mountainous desert landscapes like this are just one type of unique terrain you'll find in Kyrgyzstan. Travel the Pamir Highway (M41) and you'll be awe-struck by just how much natural beauty most of the world is missing by overlooking this haven for adventurers.
the mountains are covered in snow and blue water
Wonderous Tajikistan
If you've never consider visiting Tajikistan, here's your cue to give it a look! This stunning country is the epitome of an off-the-beaten-path adventure destination. You can hike, trail run, climb, and even backcountry ski here (based out of yurts, no less), all on a relatively affordable budget.

Song-Kul Lake
In much of the world, a lake as beautiful as this would be overrun with tourists. But in Central Asia, it's just par for the course. I walked for hours along the lakeshore at sunset and passed not one person - just a few grazing cows.
