My name is Chyngyz M. Ametov
I am from the Kyrgyzstan
I was born and raised in the Nomad family in the southern Kyrgyz mountains
I am a tour-gude recommended
by Five (5)- guide -books
1 )."Asia Centrale"/Petit Futé (by D.Auzias, J.-P.Labourdette )
2)."Kyrgyzstan" (by L.Mitchell, Bradt Travel )
And a self-employed teacher
(the language I learned myself),and English for aviation
Also I train myself in my style of Muyai-thai, which includes a lot of running
I WAS BORN and raised in the Kyrgyz Nomad family.
I belong to a nomad tribe " Börü" ,which means the Mountainous wolf.
My own uncle ıs a head of the trıbe and I am next ın lıne to succeed hım.
My mother tongue is Kyrgyz
Also I speak fluent:
English,Russsian,Uzbek.Intermediate French.Some Ukranian.
I learn French myself now, and it is not easy!
J'apprends le francais seul et c'est pas facile!
To only region in Kyrgyzstan where the tribal law still works and which was inaccessible until 2012
The year when the Kyrgyz government made visa free access to almost all corners of Kyrgyzstan for citizens of 47 countries and abolished the old rule forbidding the foreigners to visit that region.
So now you have the unique opportunity to visit the exclusive region!
Where still there is something left unexplored for you!
For example :A waterfall inside of the cave, Which is itself inside of the mountain!
NO Asian,NO European, NO Australian, NO African, NO Latin American TOURIST YET ENTERED THAT CAVE
Do you want to make video of that cave and sell it to National TV of your country,getting money and fame?
No problem! Just choose the tour,please!
In the mountainous regions of Kyrgyzstan,and especially in the South,
where I was born. The population is 100% the Kyrgyz.
It is the male dominated society where the Russian language is of no use.
Simply because no Russian ever lived there.
And the Kyrgyz living in mountains never needed Russian language
Therefore it is a must to have the male Kyrgyz guide speaking fluent Kyrgyz
Familiar with the Nomad mentality
Otherwise you will not be able to talk to the Nomads.
Learn their life,traditions,customs etc.
Or without knowing their mentality unintentionally offend them
Especially if they use High Text Culture
In the only place in Kyrgyzstan,where I take tourists to
There is something ,which is called the high text culture
I am a Kyrgyz myself,but there were moments when I failed to understand the high text culture,
when Ak-sakals (Old respected Nomads),were using it.
It is very different of the culture of the Kyrgyz elsewhere (except the Kyrgyz living in the Afganistan)
The Kyrgyz living in other parts of Kyrgyzstan, have lost the high text culture
If a guide never cooked and tasted Kyrgyz Nomad meals, how can he explain to you, what it is?
Kyrgyz Nomad Cuisine is a product of thousand years of selectionning the healthy ingredients!
You will have a chance not only to taste the Kyrgyz Nomad meals which have centuries old recipies, but also to cook them!
The Nomads migrating from Nomad Land en mass
At least 30% of them have migrated!
A sad reality of the poor economics ( no jobs,no government support,no discount prices for the goods and services etc.)
In a word the Kyrgyz government almost forgot the Nomads!
And the Nomads are leaving their homeland,searching for better life.
In one generation there will be not the pure real Nomads left...
NOMAD CULTURE, THOUSAND YEARS OLD TRADITIONS, CUISINE, HISTORY ETC. WILL BE LOST FOREVER. ..
(As an example one can take the Afgan Kyrgyz Nomads living in Wakhan corridor.
They just disappearing due to diseases,very harsh climate,war.Only couple of thousands of them are left.)
AND THEIR CULTURE DISAPPEARING
Your children and grandchildren perhaps will not have a chance to meet the pure Nomads in the Nomad Land and see with their own eyes ,how the Tribal Law works...
I have been trying to introduce the tourism into tne Nomads life and give additional income to the Nomads,who are my brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles
My own uncle ıs a head of the trıbe '' Börü'' which means- the Mountainous Wolf
and I am next ın lıne to succeed hım.
Though I have to admit I am not up to this job.
Well,I guess now you have some info about the Southern Kyrgyzstan, the Nomad Land,about me,my tours
