Visitors to Bel-Tam yurt camp often comment that the camp is a fusion of nomadic and western cultures. As a child, entrepreneur and yurt camp owner Aida Kydyrgycheva was a fan of western movies, and was greatly impressed by feats often achieved by brave cowboys, amongst wild life in prairies and across amazing landscapes.
Aida dreamed of a place, where she herself could offer this fantasy to visitors in Kyrgyzstan. She strived to define and build a place that will serve as a source of adventure, authenticity and endless freedom. She has hosted countless tourists since opening of Bel Tam in 1990. Aida even today continues to infuse western flavor into a nomadic, and dramatic setting based along the shores of lake Issyk Kul. Travelers to the camp experience all the amenities expected of a western accommodation – full kitchen, bar and bathroom facilities including hot water, showers and eco friendly toilets. All the while, they gain access to a truly nomadic experience, living life as Kyrgyz have for hundreds of years.
