Finally! After the long waitings through coldness of winter and heavy rains of spring, here comes summer! The beautiful and much missed time of the year for both elders and children!
In summer, not only the beach lovers are happy, but also the big reason for mountaineering fans to be glad as well! Why? Because some of the nature’s treasures are available only in summer. For instance, one of the most hidden pearls of Kyrgyzstan, the lake Song Kul.
Summer is the most perfect time to visit such beauty above, since it is located at the height of 3000 meters above sea level and covered with ice almost all year round. Since it takes special period and some preparations, not everyone dares to go for such tour and therefore Song Kul is one of the most untouched destinations in Kyrgyzstan!
Hello friends! Hoping you are all having a great day, I will keep on sharing my best discoveries and emotions with them…
Let me introduce you to another beautiful canyon in Central Asia, in other words, the brother of Komorchek. Charyn canyon is located in Kazakhstan, near to the city of Almaty.
After thousands of years through natural disasters, catastrophes and so on, the canyons obtained their today’s form. The territory of Charyn is about 150 km, which is less than Komorchek to 50km.
The breathtaking view you can get there is perfect for educational trips, photosessions and trekking tours. No wonder the one may wish to come back again after visiting the place once. If not visited yet, this video will serve as a great intrigue!
There are times when we go past the places without realizing how much of a history, legends and other treasures they carry. Today our destination is one of those places that we do not usually notice or don’t even know about their existance!
There are canyons with the name of Komorchek in Kyrgyz Republic. Located in one of the most remote provinces in the north part of the country, not everyone is aware of its existence. However, Komorchek is definitely worth seeing! Why?
First of all, pay attention to the period it took in order the canyons to get formed as they are today – at least a million years! Second reason is that it is the perfect place for the lovers of challenges, such as labyrinths. With the length of about 200 kilometers and crooked trails inside make you wander in the place at least a couple days!
Chimgan Mountains belong to the Chatkal mountain range and is located on north-east of Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Chimgan is one of the most popular sights for mountain tourism. However, the functions are not limited just for fun activities, but also some serious sport events, such as annual winter olympic games in the country.
Below I am sharing the video, which is not from those olympic games, but this very season – spring-summer. The video shows how popular paragliding is in that region for its beautiful highlands. As you can see, the lake of Charvak makes the paragliding experience even more breathtaking!
We have talked about the Celestial mountains pretty often but only about its parts in Kyrgyzstan. However, this huge mountain system neither ends, nor starts only in this territory. There is a big portion of it in the neighbor countries, including China and Uzbekistan. So, it feels like we can now keep on exploring them here on our blog!
I would like to welcome you guys to the beautiful country with one of the most amazing and hospitable people on earth, the pearl of Central Asia – Uzbekistan! Since the west and south parts of Tian Shan stretch till this country’s territories, there are so many reasons for visiting Uzbekistan not only for its historical treasures, but also for the beautiful mountain nature. In order to make it short, I leave the link to the list of Uzbek mountains here. Enjoy exploring!
Here we start one of the first awesome trips for this season and that is a Green Tour to the mountains of Kyrgyzstan! Why do they call it Green Tours? That is because now, in the middle of spring, the valleys and pastures around the country are dressed up in their best clothes!
The Kyrgyz people have now started moving to their tents on the mountains one by one. Some go with their cattle, others are working to gather the sweetest mountain honey and so on.
The best thing of all is that You can be the part of all this nomadic lifestlyle! Just check out the offer above, see if the dates are suitable for your timetable and then join the community of lucky ones to get there!
It is awesome to write to you guys, especially in this season of the year! Spring! The time when the whole world wakes up from a long long sleep and starts the brand new life again, thus there appears a new world!
The vacations and weekend breaks will also be all new at this time. We can now change the destinations, the activities we did in winter to something else. For instance, instead of spending time in the cabins on the mountain, we can now freely pack a bag of goods and have a nice family picnic on the fresh green grass! Instead of spending time near the fireplace watching TV, we can now go for running in the mornings and walking in the evenings.
We had just so short time to explore all places for winter sports and activities in Kyrgyzstan. However, need to feel down, since it is not too late: there are such peaks in the country, which do not easily give up on spring and summer!
Tian Shan have exactly that kind of places! They are so high that it is not even possible to climb them easily on foot. The one needs a heli ride to do so. Many cool guys shoot two rabbits in one shot at this point: they go up there for heli-skiing!
No need to make any introductions to heli-skiing, since we all know that it is one of the coolest activities that anyone can do in winter! So here is the conclusion: hurry up to go and check with the tour agencies if they have the last flights to the Celestials for heli-skiing! It definitely is worth trying!
Today I would like to make a little contrast or comparison between two beautiful countries: Kyrgyzstan and its dear neighbor, which is actually so close with culture and traditions, Kazakhstan.
Last time you guys were introduced to the awesome ski base of Kyrgyzstn – Karakol. So today, the topic will be the ski resort in Kazakhstan, of which they are really proud.
Not so far from Bishkek city, just about 3-4 hours on the car is the gorgeous city of Almaty. The destination of ours is also located at that very place. They call it “Shymbulak” – Kazakhstan’s winter wonderland, is said to be open and ready to receive skier even in May!
The video attached here shows the resort in one of the best ways, from the very beginning till how the visitors enjoy their time on the slopes!
I would recommend you to give a close attention to this, because I am going to introduce you to one of the best destinations for winter vacations!
True, it already is spring on Earth, but not in every corner of it, actually, for a lot of people’s happiness! Somewhere in Kyrgyzstan, there hides a beautiful winter wonderland, called Karakol!
Located in one of the most famous touristic spots of the country, Issyk Kul, Karakol ski resort attracts a lot of visitors that are not only from the provinces around, but also from all over the world!
What makes the place special? Definitely, its perfect atmosphere, snow condition, all necessary equipments for winter sports and of course super affordable prices!
