Drive from Bishkek to Ala Archa National Park. On the way we make several stops near a cemetery for taking pictures and to visit the grave of a national Kyrgyz hero – Baitik Baatyr, his mausoleum.
Upon arrival to the park zone you can walk up along the river (the easiest route), go up to the Ak-Sai waterfall or to the alpinist cemetery. All three routes are of different levels of difficulty, but all of them are very beautiful. It is up to you which one to choose.
The park covers an area of 200 km2, mostly forested valleys, waterfalls, and rivers that are rich in trout. The elevation of various sections of the park ranges from 1,500 m to 4,895 m (Peak Semenov Tien Shanskii). Several rare species of fauna and the area’s famous juniper trees are under protection in this national park. It contains some very diverse wildlife: mountain meadows are the habitat of wild goats, deer, and marmots. Ala Archa National Park is one of the few places in the world that is the natural habitat of the rare snow leopard.
