Uyacha (or Nest in Kyrgyz) is the first sustainable agri-tourism LEED eco-lodge near Lake Issyk Kul in the Kyrgyz Republic. Uyacha provides guests opportunities to simply relax & enjoy some fresh & tasty local meals, or to actively participate in the sustainable production of organic food. For more personal cross-cultural experiences, they offer cooking classes to learn how to make local dishes, and organise day trips to explore the natural beauty of the Tian Shan mountains. In addition, Uyacha provides agricultural & ecological education to the local community & interested visiting tourists. As a model productive agri-tourism attraction, the guesthouse resources are being used to provide education about sustainable best practices to local community residents.
