6 passes in the Boom Gorge
(One day trekking)

Travelling is great at any time of the year but it is more special in spring, when nature wakes up from a long winter sleep. This time of the year you would definitely want to fully enjoy the bright fresh colors, breathe in the air filled with awakening and astringency, take a look at the boundless expanses of the country.

We offer you a unique tour with the opportunity to go over six amazing and diverse passes of the Boom Gorge in one day. Most importantly, this place is located just a couple of hours from the capital. You should agree that a trip to the mountains for at least one day is not only good for health, but also diversifies your boring working days.

To start with, you have to make a short drive by car (about 130 km) along a good asphalt road. This path will lead you to the Boom gorge from where we will begin our unusual forced march.

The area is arid; there is almost no rainfall, so the best time for hiking here is spring, namely April-May. At the end of April, scatterings of tulips are added to the meager vegetation, when driving there is an opportunity to see flowering fruit trees, and in early May you will be able to see red poppies along the road.

Our path will be diversified by: a suspension bridge over the Chu River, the famous canyons of Konorchek, ancient rock paintings - petroglyphs and unique, beautiful mountain panoramas.

Later you will remember with pride that you did it! Six mountain passes, 16 km, seven hours alone with nature. Such a charge can be received again and again.

We will be glad to see you as a member in our groups!
