Guests can go to a city tour and witness Pobeda Square (Victory Square), Duboviy Park (Oak Park), Central Ala-Too Square, Old Square, National Philharmonic. These are the main sightseeing. Then we make a way of 45km to Ala Archa gorge. It is located at the Tien Shan mountain range and is great for hiking, especially in spring. Weather is not so hot yet, and it is a little bit cool. The gorge is peculiar for being created in the Soviet Union but still bearing the beauty of nature. Then guests drive back to Bishkek and sleep in the hotel.

The lunch will be organized during which there will be the communication with the nomads. Homestay is the today way of spending night.
Day 3: Chon Kemin - Issyk Kul lake northern shore
After the gorge Chon Kemin we will travel to the north of Issyk Kul Lake. Both shores are amazing, but this one is peculiar for some sites which can be visited along the trip. The lake is the pearl of the country, people are very proud of it and can't imagine their life without this site. Then we identify the following site - Rukh Ordo complex. It is in the Issyk Kul region and in the very Cholpon Ata city. Right near the shore! It is the main place of meetings of the presidents.

Here there is an opportunity to do hiking and breathe fresh spring air, the weather is mild and cool, there are no crowds of people. Then you are moving to Karakol town and visit the Dungan mosque. It was created by the architect from China in the Chinese style. Peculiar thing is seen in the creation of it without metal and nails. Like the Orthodox Church, as it is made out of wood, no stone or metal. You will have a night in the lodging house.
Day 5: Karakol - Jeti Oguz - Issyk Kul southern shore - Kochkor
Our team is glad to show the entire beauty of Kyrgyzstan during the spring period just travel here. Here we notice the first remarkable site - Jeti Oguz gorge. The legend says seven bulls in the form of the rocks appeared when one khan was killing one bull in one day, when on the 8th day he killed his wife, her blood covered the rocks. Then you can see and even mount the Broken Heart Mountain. As it is spring and in some places there can be lying snow, it will take 20-30 minutes. The further destination is Bokonbaevo village on the way to Kochkor. Here we witness the eagle hunting, already included in the program, and get to Kochkor to spend the night in the home of the local dwellers.
Day 6: Kochkor - Kyzyl Oi
When guests are in Kochkor they usually find themselves interested in the process of carpets creation. Spring is the season of this activity and the locals are usually busy creating long-lasting carpets. Then we drive you to Kyzyl Oi village where you remember about the images created on the carpets, about ornaments and lines, the colors peculiar to the Kyrgyz people. The night will be in a homestay as you can notice the nomads are hospitable and friendly people.
