Excursion to Alamedin gorge
(Nordic Walking in Kyrgyzstan)

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.

Today we will walk to Alamedin Waterfall with an experienced Nordic walking instructor who will explain and show the principle of this type of activity. The route is about five kilometers from the car park. Saturated bright greenery, abundant thickets of sea buckthorn, barberry, wild rose, lulling hum of a crystal-clear mountain river and fresh air will help you to fully relax after a work week, gain new strength and inspiration.

Here, you can organize a picnic, you can pick up medicinal herbs - thyme, oregano and then brew and drink healthy hot tea on winter evenings. An excursion to the Alamedin Gorge is suitable for everyone who wants to spend a day in the mountains with health benefits, and return to the city in the evening.

    Bishkek - Alamedin Gorge (30 km / 40 minutes). A day trip to the Alamedin gorge and a Nordic-style hiking trip to the same name waterfall is one of the easiest walks on the Kyrgyz Range. It’s good to start the trip at 9 a.m. The gorge is located just 30 kilometers from Bishkek so you will get to the gorge in about 40 minutes. Entrance to the gorge is absolutely free.

    Having walked slightly above the parking lot you will need to cross the Alamedin River to the right side and from there, heading deeper into the gorge, you will begin your smooth hike. The trail goes along a spacious slope covered with herbs and shrubs. When you reach the confluence of the Salyk stream with the Alamedin River, approximately 2 hours after the start, you will see a place of amazing beauty called “Silent backwater”. There is a small grove and the stream’s water spills around with a thin layer shining in the sun. From here you need to turn to the right and after 20 minutes Alamedin waterfall will be seen in all its glory falling between narrow rocks.

    After admiring the falling jets of the waterfall, you can go back to the green meadow and organize a picnic. To do this you need to take a snack with you in advance or order lunch boxes from us. After the picnic you can take a break and start your way back.
