|Kyzyl-Oi is quite different from the other mountain villages in Kyrgyzstan. It existed even before the Great Socialist Revolution, and has therefore kept its distinct Central Asian character with its reddish clay houses. Kyzyl-Oi is located in a narrow gorge on the riverside of the powerful Kokomeren River some 40km south of Suusamyr on the road to Kochkor Village and Son-Kol Lake (both in Naryn region), and about 200km from Bishkek. The elevation is 1,800 metres asl; here, a valley opens up somewhat to form a hollow ringed by the high red-coloured mountains, which gave the place its name. Kyzyl means red in Kyrgyz.
In Kyzyl Oi one can stay at private Kyrgyz house. Home stays satisfy the basic quality standards, established by CBT Association. The main requirements - cleanness, comfort and hospitality. You will be suggested to overnight in simple but clean twin, triple rooms or rooms for 4 people with comfortable beds. Shower and toilet are shared (the amenities are outside).
