Kyrgyz People And Their Horses: A Strong Connection | Diary Of A Traveller. Being long here in Kyrgyzstan, I got the chance to experience the Kyrgyz culture… diving deeper into their world… to see their way of life and trying to look at life from their point of view. Living quite sometime in Karakol town on the eastern part of the country, I got lucky to know some guys from a local tour guide company called Ecotrek.

They got attracted by my travel stories, photography and videos about my journey in Kyrgyzstan and it was really a good opportunity to know these people since they’re local people who know a lot about their mountains and have great contacts all over the country. They helped me getting great ideas on my filming here in Kyrgyzstan. By using their contacts, I also get to know a local man who live in the mountain with his horses, who is also a guide taking tourists for multiple days tour on horseback through the Tien Shan Mountains.

The day I left Barskoon was a tricky one. It was challenging, dangerous but adventurous. I couldn’t find a clear path on the big rocky hills around Barskoon towards the west and I had to climb high on one of the big hill. It was nothing more than a trap. The slope down was steep. I had no other choice but to descend the steep rocky hill on the other side to get to a river. In the middle of the descend, I then realized that it was a mistake. My black horse was too afraid to descend the rocky hill… got panic and fell down. Curious local kids along the way My tripod fell down from my bag to the ground making a sound that made my horses nervous.

I went to my horses to calm them down. I continued my journey early the next day once the sun showed up. The horses were feasting the grass while Im taking a rest near Tosor pass Tosor pass in the far distance While I was going slowly towards the Tosor pass, my horses got nervous.

Lao Valhalla review, Other side of the river, 1 km from toll bridge on the road to the blue lagoon, Vang Vieng, Vang Vieng. With six lovely bungalows surrounded by a beautiful garden, rice paddies and cliffs, Lao Valhalla is well worth the one kilometre bike ride from town. Hardworking owner Nout gives guests true Lao hospitality, and her disarming friendliness and genuine care is heart warming. It’s a wonderful feeling and a rarity in this jaded over-touristed town. Cool off and chill out. Head down one kilometre down the dirt road part Maylyn Guesthouse in the direction of Blue Lagoon and Lao Valhalla will be on your right side – you can’t miss the sign commanding you to “STOP HERE for FOOD, DRINK and RELAX.” Come on in. Opened in 2014, the six bungalows feature a mix of stone, wood and bamboo thatch, with plank floorboards.

Sweet dreams. The large windows and glass front doors bring in a lot of natural light which makes these modestly sized rooms even bigger. For US$15 a night, there are no complaints about these sparkling bathrooms. An excellent Lao language primary – it’s all you need. Type of room Low High. Ötme Bülbül Ötme - Bin Yilin Türküsü.

Bandarawela Vacation House with 4 bedrooms | FlipKey. Ella Vacation House with 1 bedroom | FlipKey. Bandarawela - Wikipedia. Bandarawela (Sinhala : බණ්ඩාරවෙල, pronounced [ˈbandarawela]; Tamil: பண்டாரவளை) is the second largest town in the Badulla District which is 30 kilometres (19 mi) away from Badulla. Bandarawela is 200 km (120 mi) away from Colombo and about 125 km (78 mi) away from Kandy, the two capital cities of Sri Lanka. Thanks to its higher altitude, compared to surrounding locations, Bandarawela has milder weather conditions throughout the year making it a popular tourist destination for locals. Bandarawela is within hours reach of surrounding towns and cities by both road and rail.

The town is influenced by its colonial history and rests among dense, lush forestation occupying a niche among visitors as a base for eco-tourism. Politics[edit] The town is governed by a municipal council and headed by a mayor. The area outside the municipality is governed by the "Pradeshiya Saba" which is similar to the urban council. Heritage[edit] Geography and climate[edit] Demography[edit] Economy[edit] Education[edit] Diyatalawa - Wikipedia. Diyatalawa (දියතලාව) is a garrison town in the central highlands of Sri Lanka, in the Badulla District of Uva Province. It is at an altitude of 1,499 m (4,918 ft) and has become a popular destination for local holiday makers. It is home to the Diyatalawa Garrison of the Sri Lanka Army, which includes the Sri Lanka Military Academy, officer training center of the army; SLAF Diyatalawa, the Sri Lanka Air Force's ground combat training centre; and facilities of the Sri Lanka Police.

History[edit] It is not known when Diyatalawa became a training station for troops, but available records show that it was selected around 1885, when the British Army first established a garrison at Diyatalawa. Early in World War II the camp was reopened and German nationals resident in Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as many sailors, like those removed from the Asama Maru in violation of international law, were housed here. Sri Lanka gained its independence, as Ceylon, in 1948.
