There are some mountains on Earth, which give no chance to skiing or snowboarding, but yet, there are plenty of visitors every year. Sulaiman mountain in Osh city is one of those places.
They also call it a sacred mountain for being named after the prophet Sulaiman. Situated in the center of the city, mountain has got variety of attractions, which interest both tourists and local citizens.
As you go up the mountain, you will be able to see the signs of ancient rituals, such as trees, branches of which are filled with ribbons. People used to make wishes and leave them in ribbons on the trees, hoping they will come true. You may also see very smooth rocks, just like in a playgrounds. However, do not be surprised to see elders playing there! They are actually there in search of healing: they say the rock can heal the parts of the body…
They used a big cave and turned into a unique museum, which introduces visitors to the culture, history, flora and fauna of the country. If you go up even higher, you will discover a nice white building. It is said to have been built by the famous king and poet of India – Zahiriddin Muhammad Bobur. Now it is a small mosque, where the guests can listen to the recitations of Quran…
I guess it is the nature of person to want more than he has. A piece of chocolate cake makes him impatient until he gets another slice. The same happens to me when I run into awesome Travel Videos
! Especially after our trip to Ala Archa, I fell in love with mountains and have been longing for the same trip again!
On the other hand, similar trip may not bring as much joy as it did in the first time. So, it is time to look for new and more difficult challenges! This is what I am doing at the moment. Not only me, but also my friends are taking that huge responsibility.
One of the best offers from friends for now is climbing the highest mount in Kyrgyzstan. It does sound a bit too loud, since I’m not even a professional climber! However, I found that there are special helicopter tours to those high mounts of this country. I’m crossing fingers at the moment in order my next dream comes true!
This place is just WOW!!! The beginning of autumn was the first time I went there and it left me in awes…
Just an hour or so ride on the car from Bishkek is that Ala Archa National Park. It is a perfect place for group trips and picnics in autumn and great ski wonderland in winter. Although, I haven’t been there in winter yet, but feeling so excited already looking at the pictures and videos I found on internet
What else makes it awesome about this place is that if the weekends or vacations are long enough, then there are pretty nice conditions to even stay there for couple or more days. There are nice cabins to live in and spend peaceful days in harmony with nature, which wouldn’t hurt us – stressful students or even our parents!
