Good afternoon, dear Yapovtsy. Here is my trip report in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and about. Issyk-Kul (ibid) in August and September of this year.
So, in order.
Tickets Aeroflot quite cheap. Fly in the same direction 4, 5 hours. The season ticket back costs about 26,000 rubles in both directions. If you take 2-3 months for the 18000 can be found.
Kyrgyzstan is quite a small country, but with a very beautiful natural resources. He lives in the country of about 6 million people (officially, I think less than if we take into account migration).
We sit in a plane and land in Manas airport, 15-20 km from the capital - Bishkek. Photos ways and there is no airport, so I'll start immediately with the capital.

On his return to Bishkek, I was invited to visit the new location - Supari, which is 5 km away from Bishkek. One of the local businessmen built a real old village. Perhaps for him it is like from my childhood.
It is very beautiful and has a great opportunity to taste the real local cuisine. I advise you to visit. The gazebo near the fountains at Besh-Barmak drink just fine.
