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!
It is the most wonderful time of the year! I say this every time the snow falls in winter and covers the whole world in white. And that is also the perfect blessing, since not every country can enjoy snow in winter.Kyrgyzstan always has enough of it every year…
This is the perfect reason to come visit this country for winter vacations! Its beautiful mountains and ski bases on them are always ready to welcome the visitors with great snow conditions to enjoy skiing, snowboarding or just playing snowballs!
The first place I would offer to anyone is the Karakol ski base in Issyk Kul province. There are so many reasons why it became the most famous and favorite of all winter-sport-lovers. Great service, all facilities and necessary snow condition is provided all the time there. The prices are also reasonable and worth your money
I remember asking my American friend about their national food, since it was really interesting to know what the most famous dish in one of the biggest countries of the world was. However, it made him think for a while and he could not really name anything particular. Here I remembered that the country was actually built by variety migrants all over the world and there cannot be any certain food, since there is no official Nationality in America at all!
The only thing he could name was “steak”, particularly the steak of burgers. This actually makes some sense, since burgers and fast food is actually the first thing that comes to mind while talking about American food. It is the main dish in all picnics and parties in the country and I remember having so much joy observing how they made barbeque. I must say that American steak is definitely one of the best ones ever!
The fact that I want to share may be a very shocking discovery to some of you, so if you are too sensitive, then just ignore this paragraph and jump into the next! So, they say that the meat of a headless goat, which is played in the Kyrgyz national game “Ulak Tartysh”, is very soft and delicious…
However, Kyrgyz national cuisine is that unusual and interesting. The most part of national dishes take meat and flour. It may be too strong for those, who are used to eating light food, but for the nomads, who had to fight with cold on the mountains, it was exactly what they needed. Would you believe if I say that they can eat a whole sheep at once? Then check out this video:
