Excursion to Alamedin gorge
(Hiking to the waterfall and hot springs)
Alamedin mountain gorge is the closest to Bishkek, located just 30 km from the capital. It is very popular among tourists and local residents due to its accessibility and natural radon springs which are medicinal and help fight sleep disturbance, stress and diseases of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The sanatorium "Tyoplye Klyuchi” (warm springs) functions in the gorge; it was built here back in the days of the Soviet Union.
In addition to the opportunity to swim in hot radon waters, there is an opportunity to take a simple walk to the Alamedin waterfall which is located 5 kilometers from the car parking. Saturated bright greenery, abundant thickets of sea buckthorn, barberry, wild rose, lulling hum of a crystal-clear mountain river and fresh air determine the beauty of the Alamedin gorge.
Here, you can organize a picnic, children can run along the green slopes, you can pick up medicinal herbs - thyme, oregano and then brew and drink healthy hot tea on winter evenings. The gorge is suitable for anyone who wants to diversify their stay in Kyrgyzstan and not having the opportunity to stay in the country for long wants to see amazing landscapes of the Kyrgyz Mountains.
