Visitors enter the town through the main gate of “Kyrgyz Village”, decorated with flagpoles in a traditional style. Visitors are given an opportunity to feel the deep culture of nomads and become acquainted with traditions of the Kyrgyz people.

The opening of “Kyrgyz Village” was accompanied by a grand folklore festival, called “Nomad’s Universe”.

In a central area, there is the largest yurt, Khan Ordo, and nearby are yurts for honored guests, two observation towers, flagpoles and a tower called “buta”.

Other yurts are headquarters of the emergency services, law enforcement services, health services and media center for foreign and local media.

A special area in the territory of the yurt camp was designated for foreign delegations, where they can set up their own traditional tents and houses.
