The increase in the tourist flow from Mongolia to the Kyrgyz Republic was discussed today at a meeting of the President of the Tourism Development Support Fund Abylkasim Sherniyazov with the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Mongolia Mr Sondom Gankhuang.
Our countries have much in common, and Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia are the only States that have retained a nomadic culture. For our citizens there is a visa-free regime, which allows staying in the territory of another country for up to 90 days. This opens up great opportunities for cooperation in tourism.
The team of the Fund told the Mongolian ambassador about the ongoing projects. The diplomat, in turn, noted that now in the Kyrgyz Republic successfully operates eight Mongolian companies, including one tourist. Travelers from Mongolia, and this year there were already more than 440 people, go mainly to Issyk-Kul.
Mr Ganghuang noted that the interest in trips to the Kyrgyz Republic is high enough and at one time even flew a regular flight from Bishkek to Ulaanbaatar. The ambassador proposed to develop a special tourist route that could be sold in Mongolia.
