Review from our guest Dana

Loved our stay! Awesome place to stay in an authentic yurt! Tynch and his family were incredibly welcoming and very helpful from calling taxis for us to giving us trip ideas. Tynch and his mother have excellent English and we had many interesting conversations. His father speaks fluent German too. Their home cooked meals were a real treat and gave us a good taste of Kyrgyz life. To top things off the flower garden surrounding the yurts was absolutely beautiful.

If you go to Karakol and are looking for traditional and comfortable accommodation then this place is a must! If you are looking for five stars western accommodation then it's probably best to look elsewhere but it would be a real shame to not stay at Happy Nomads Yurt Camp.

The hospitality was above and beyond what we expected.
