We go to Osh and Batken region to explore caves in spring and autumn!
Spring or autumn is the best period to explore caves in the south of our country. It is not so hot at this time. Summer is usually hot in Kyrgyzstan and it is better to hide from the heat somewhere in the mountains where you can feel a cold breath of glaciers (at the foothill of Lenin peak for example).
The temperature in spring or autumn is rather warm during the day in Osh and Batken regions. Remember, that it can be rather cold during the night. You should have a warm sleeping bag. We have spent almost all nights in tents and we cooked outside. Most of the food we bought in Bishkek before the trip and we had the possibility to buy fresh fruits and vegetables on the way.
We drove about 2600km in this 8-days trip. So many interesting things we have seen and heard from our guide Alexey Dudashvili there.
This program includes caves that are not often visited, such as Cave Reserves. There are not so many caves in Kyrgyzstan like in Turkmenistan or Uzbekistan but all our caves are located in fantastic places. One of them is Aravan and Ak Bura. Here is located beautiful Chil Ustun. It is possible to see karst outcrops here. Both caves look like underground temples. You will see giant stalactites, stone columns and small thin stalactites-tube that look like frozen stone rain.
This tour includes not just amazing caves with its fantastic inner world, but also picturesque scenery around. The landscape of that area is another world! Jurassic World! The mountains are not mountains. They look like frozen bubbles, painted in purple, red, yellow, blue and orange colors. Bizarre forms! The sculptures, towers, fences, pilasters, waterfalls.
