Bishkek has many places for a tourist to see. Today we will visit the Arts museum, Opera and Ballet Theater, National Philharmonic, Government building, Victory monument and Manas monument. The interesting fact is that Bishkek is the only town in Central Asia that still has the monument of V. I. Lenin on the central square. Bishkek remembers its history and will definitely tell it to everybody who wants to visit this small but cozy capital. Bishkek is famous for its green parks in the city center, keeping all citizens and guests under the shadow and coolness even on the hottest summer day. Overnight in the hotel. Meals are on your own.


Ala-Archa park. After breakfast we will go to the national park Ala-Archa where we will take pleasure from seeing a great Kyrgyz nature. The park is located in 40 km from Bishkek on the slopes of Kyrgyz Ala-Too.

Ala-Archa is translated from Kyrgyz language as “motley juniper”. The gorge got its name due to a great amount of juniper covering its slopes. As different kinds of juniper have different colors and the gorge seems to be very colorful. Almost all treks and hiking trips start from the same named alpine camp Ala-Archa, located at the forest zone on the height of 2100m over the sea level. The camp first consisted of tents in 1951 and then grew into the modern size. This was the second important place in Soviet Union after Caucasus, a kind of climbing Mecca of Central Asia. A lot of famous climbers started their climbing career here. The camp itself is located close to Ak-Sai glacier, that is surrounded by many summits of different difficulty level.

We will have a hike to Ak-Sai waterfall and come back to Bishkek. Overnight. Meals - Breakfast / lunch (picnic)

Issyk-Kul Lake also ranks second in water transparency after Baikal lake. The local population calls Issyk-Kul lake «The Pearl of Kyrgyzstan».

The first place we will visit today is the Fairy Tale gorge. The whole originality of the place is the frozen in bizarre forms colorful rocks, like after the eruption. Solid clusters made of limestone and sandstone are bulging from the colorful soil and the place looks like the ruins of ancient castles. The most surprising is that the architect and sculptor of the place is the nature that used only water, sun and wind as instruments. Besides the fancy castles and fairy figures, the structures can also be considered as many-domed churches, and crenellated walls with loopholes; for example - Sandy fence, which is very much like the Chinese wall, stretching for several kilometers along the southern shore of Lake Issyk- Kul.

Further we drive to Djeti-Oguz by the eastern shore of Issyk-Kul lake. The gorge is located in 60 km to the west of Karakol on the northern slopes of Terskey-Ala-Too. This is one of the most beautiful places in Kyrgyzstan. For 25 km on both sides of the gorge the fir trees are growing at first merging into small groups and then turning into huge forest mass. The gorge finally becomes a wide Kok-Djayik valley which is totally covered by fir forests up to the very top of the ridge. Over the forest zone (about 3000 m) in the wide valley of about 15 km there are amazing subalpine and alpine meadows called Djailoo.

During the spring and the summer Djeti-Oguz gorge turns into a kind of flower holiday, among which you may see the silver stars of Edelweiss flowers, alpine daisies and asters, and nard (golden root). In the Autumn the gorge is being a colorful canvas as it’s covered not only by coniferous forests but also by the leaf trees.
