Kyrgyzstan: Home Of The Horselords

Hello everyone,

I decided to share another short video for this month, this one is about the life of a Kyrgyz horseman who live at the foot of the Tien Shan Mountains on eastern part of Kyrgyzstan. This is a small part of my upcoming full documentary “Dengan Basikal Aku Menjelajah” (With Bicycle I Travel) Season 3 which is coming soon to our local Malaysian TV Station (TV AlHijrah) this year. 

Shot almost entirely on raw format at 4K resolution with my Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, Canon 5Dm3 and the new GoPro Hero4 but scaled down to 1080p for Internet view.

This is a tribute video to the kind Kyrgyz people who has helped me a lot on my adventure in Kyrgyzstan and taught me so many things in life.

Filmed & edited entirely by myself

  1. Thanks. You used drone to film some of those video?


  2. Phew! Managed to catch up from your first blog post up to here and I must say that you’re writing has changed, for the better of course! You’ve let us in on your self reflections which made us feel connected :)

    Now it made me think twice on the places that I want to go since most of my past travel experiences are to those touristy places doing touristy things. I would love to try living in the middle of nowhere and try living on my own pace instead of trying to cram in a lot of places and activities in a short period of time. I would take it slow and drink the beauty of God’s creation :)

    Keep it up!

  4. i was wondering how you achieved the aerial shots, but that was the first question answered. Wonderful work. Where are you uploading your work from? I imagine the internet speed must make it difficult from time to time. Although, in Finland there’d be no issues….
