It is located 28 kilometers west of the city of Karakol along the southern shore of Issyk-Kul. The name "Jeti-Oguz" (translated as " bulls") came from a chain of weathered red rocks, similar to bulls lying on the ground, and became a visiting card of the gorge.

For example, one set of ridges in the canyon is called the "The Chinese Wall" due to its similarity to the Great Wall of China.

Bishkek Tour Reviews

Great day trip packed with nature and local cuisine

Ala Archa National Park is one of those must-visit spots in Kyrgyzstan, and this day trip nicely pairs it with a meal at the home of a truly hospitable local family. Aidana, meanwhile, is a great guide who answered my countless questions about the country – encountering a female tour guide on my solo travels was just a bonus!

Thank you Zaman and Aidana, lovely team
