Hiking in Ala Archa gorge in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a country of king-like mountains which attract all travellers making their tours and of the loveliest is hiking in Ala Archa gorge. During your tours in Kyrgyzstan you will see that the country is located at different altitudes and these altitudes vary depending on the place you are wishing to travel to.

For us it is a pleasure to tell that the gorge may be visited by everyone ready to travel in 40km from Bishkek. In the course of a tour in Kyrgyzstan you will see that the gorge was created to be 22km natural park in 1976. This is one of the great proud of local citizens of Kyrgyzstan. Travelling to the gorge it becomes possible to see that mainly the name of the gorge has a certain translation from the Kyrgyz language. And here we can say that it is translated as "bright and colorful juniper". Making a tour in Kyrgyzstan rent cars and you will see that juniper (archa) is a plant used for burning by the people for the smoke to make evil ghosts to get away.

The natural park is located at the altitude of 1600-4800 m above sea level. During tours in the gorge you can make a witness of the famous Ak-Sai glacier and Ratzek's hut. During tours on cars rent in Kyrgyzstan it is possible to make a witness of the highest peak of the gorge Ala Archa. This peak is known as the Peak Semenov-Tienshanski of 4895m above sea level. Of course only professional mountaineers can dare vaulting it.
