KATO is the Kyrgyz Association of Tour Operators & consists of many member tour operators. I have not used or dealt with all of them. Als0, the website details are not very up-to-date… Anyway, the URL is http://kat.kg – with Russian & English language versions available.
For those who are residing in Kyrgyzstan, or planned to only contact a tour operator once in-country, here are some recommended companies that I have dealt with & can vouch for their professionalism. Look on their respective websites for more details of their specific tour offerings, areas of specialization, etc.
