Learn about the rich history, traditions and customs of the Kyrgyz people at the unique Kochu Festival as it celebrates the rituals performed by nomadic Kyrgyz tribes during their annual autumn migration. Expect games and sport competitions, huge birds of prey hunting demonstrations, dance and music performances and hospitable families who welcome you into their yurts (traditional home) for some home-cooked food.
Kochu Festival usually takes place in August. The date of the 2020 Kochu Festival has yet to be announced. For further information please contact our Travel Advisors.
