Hunting Area: Arpa valley, Kyrgyzstan

Price: $23,500

General Information:

You will fly to Bishkek (FRU) via Istanbul (IST) on Turkish Air, Frankfurt or Moscow. Recommended to travel through Istanbul because it is more difficult to get firearms through Frankfurt or Moscow. You’ll be met by an interpreter and camp management at the Bishkek Airport and will be assisted as needed. We recommend paying the extra cost of a VIP transfer as there are less hassles and the service is much better. You’ll get your visa at the airport upon arrival. You’ll travel 560 km to the hunting area, using 4×4 Jeeps. Drives to base camp takes 8 -12 hours, depending on weather.
