Get ready for the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan from 3rd to the 8th of September!

It is without a doubt one of the most photogenic events I have witnessed in 19 years of travelling, and being a photographer it is absolute heaven.

Around 40 countries come to Kyrgyzstan to compete in traditional nomadic sports through the ages to keep the old traditions alive.

The people are so friendly.

It’s held next to the scenic Issyk – Kul lake with a backdrop of mountains behind.

I went to the first one 2 years ago and in preparation for the new one coming up I went through some of the old photos to give you all a taste of what’s to come.

Enjoy 🙂

WNG!
