It is an excellent idea to meet, more exactly to spend this beautiful season of spring in harmony with nature. It is great that Kyrgyzstan is rich with natura beauty, however, it also makes the choice more difficult. But what am I here for, right?
What I want to show you today is the prototype of the Grand Canyon in Kyrgyzstan – the canyons of Komorchek. Those gorgeous red formations of clay highlands are the results of millions of years of erosion and natural effect on the region.
Nowadays, you will find yourself in the incredible vast territory of a natural labirynth, which is said to be stretching up to two hundred kilometers. Take this chance of beautiful spring weather, which is perfect for spending weekends at Komorchek canyons!
Nice to see you guys again here on my blog today! What I would like to share with my dear ones this time is that amazing destination, which is always pleasant to visit and that is Ala-Archa National Park!
Spring is going as beautifully as it can this year and the weather is just making people get out of their homes and do something fun outside. Therefore, we notice more and more visitors in touristic spots from now on and the hotels filled with guests!
Ala-Archa is still in the number one list of attractions and this is not a big surprise at all. The Ala-Archa canyon now is at its best, all covered in freshness. This will create and incredibly beautiful atmosphere for the family picnics and active trekking weekends.
In such a beautiful time of the year, all the person wants to do is to embrace nature! To meet it with warm greetings and enjoy its warmth and beauty as much as possible!
In Kyrgyzstan, spring is one of the most favorite seasons of people. The reason is that in recent years, the winters in the region are getting longer and people cannot wait seeing warmer days!
Another reason for this love is that spring is full of holidays, including traditional and international. As an example, we can call “Navruz” – the greatest holiday of all (Central Asian New Year), May 9 – the Victory Day and so on.
For those, who would like to take a cultural tour around Kyrgyzstan, it is the most perfect time of the year! Those tours in spring will be filled with joy, colorful traditions and adventures!
I think that spring is also the perfect season to travel to Central Asian countries, including Kyrgyzstan, because it is when the biggest amount of holidays in a year are celebrated there. They include the International Women’s day, Navruz, Victory Day and so many other spring festivals.
Just yesterday, so many people enjoyed the biggest holiday of spring – Navruz. Variety of different nationalities gathered in one place, bright and colorful costumes of theirs and so much deliciousness of each nation filled the squares of all cities. The songs and dances that were so full of life led everyone feel the joy of this season’s coming. It was the celebration of a new start not only for nature, but also for every one of celebrating individual…
I wonder if you guys remember adorable Frostie from the Disney movie “Frozen”. It was his biggest dream to get suntanned in summer. They all knew that it is impossible and against the nature’s law, but they found the way to make his dream come true anyways! Unfortunately, the reality does not allow our “Frosties” to survive in the high temperatures of summer.
Anyways, all I want to say is that no need to feel bad about the problem above. There is just so much the one can do in any season of the year, including spring! If you hear that there is no more snow in the valley of Suusamyr, then be glad that now you have a chance to go for the activity below!
After the intriguing and motivating post about the awesomeness of heli-skiing, I started feeling like I am ust responsible to offer the possible spots for you guys, in order to realize that activity as well. So, let us get it started!
What I think you would love to know about is that there is a gorgeous valley, called Suusamyr in the middle of the great Tian Shan mountain range. It is not a simple valley, which can be visited for famil picnics, but the one, whose peaks can even reach more than four thousands of meters above the sea level! This is the very reason why I decided to introduce you to this beauty.
Since it takes much time and strength to climb so high as four thousand meters, many prefer going up by the helicopter and by this they shoot two rabbits at the same time: they save time and enjoy heli-skiing!
We said that Kyrgyzstan is rich with mountains and the opportunities for the mountain sports are also as many as the mountain peaks there. You also know that one of the most popular among them is the winter sports and they are incredibly cheap comparing to the other countries and continents, such as Canada or Russia.
Why not then to take a look at how those “much more expensive” tours in Canada look like? Watch and enjoy the video, which will give the idea of heli-skiing :
When we are talking about winter sports and activities, there is something else we cannot skip and it is ice skating! This beautiful kind of sport and entertainment is actually available in all seasons of the year, thanks to the indoor skating rinks. However, open air can only be done in freezing winters or in the places, where summer does not exist at all!
It is true that the skates are the same and the ice below is also, but it is an absolutely different taste, another excitement if the skating is done outdoors. Only those who have tried it can feel rush of adrenaline on the skating rink, which seem to have no boundaries around, under the sky towards which you will feel like flying with your skates!
So, definitely do keep in mind this fascinating activity in your next winter breaks! Keep an eye on those open air rinks, such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin, which is located close to Bishkek city, Kyrgyzstan.
Here is the combination of two previous ideas for winter vacations. I think it is one of the best tour plans, which takes you to the best winter wonderlands of Kyrgyzstan – Ala Archa gorge and Karakol ski resort.
The tour lasts for about nine days. No worries about meals, entrance fees to museums, exhibitions and also accomodations. All you need to do is getting in touch with the travel agents and let them do their bests in organizing the most fun experience possible for your winter vacations.
The only thing you will have to take care of is the tickets, visa fees and something extra you may want to have during your travel, such as chocolate bars or alcoholic beverages.
Ala Archa is one of the places, which deserve to be introduced in Kyrgyzstan. This is the gorge, national park, ski resort, all in one recreational zone. People love going to this amazing place in any time of the year, and this is why they also call it “Universal Destination” of tourists.
Definitely, none of the tourists leave Kyrgyzstan without visiting Ala Archa. It is comfortable to go for it is not far from the capital city and is worth seeing. Covered with fur trees and fresh green grasses in summer, it makes it a great zone to have picnics.
Now in winter the place is covered with snow, which allows you to go for winter sports, including skiing or snowboarding. The view of the glaciers around, trees in white is just to die for!
