Talking about South America last time, my mind was later filled with its other natural wonders and beauties, such as waterfalls!
Waterfalls have always enchanted me with their graciousness, majesty and beauty that is able to make anyone drop their jaws in awe! I later understood why in Central Asia, they compare the hair of a girl to waterfalls, flowing gracefully from above…
It is definitely a perfect option to get a chance to visit the most famous waterfalls, as Victoria or Niagara. However, for those, who live in Central Asia, it is a bit difficult. So, where can we enjoy visiting waterfalls there?
I say, welcome to Arslanbab Waterfall in Jalal Abad province of Kyrgyzstan. This is the place, known to anyone in the country, so it is not difficult at all to find it. This is where families go to relax, friends have fun and in short, a universal-purpose destination!
I am extremely glad to talk to you guys again and excited to be able to this information about the next awesome place to visit in Central Asia! The last time I showed you the Asian prototype of the Great Canyons. This time also you will get too see such awesome destination, which is located in the territory if Kyrgyzstan.
They call this place as Asian Patagonia, the one which reminds so much of South African bewildered mountain ranges and its breathtakingly beautiful nature on its majestic mountains. So, if you have ever dreamed of traveling to that Patagonia, no need to take such a long way to the other end of the world!
The best season to visit that place is the end of May till August. This is when the weather will be warm enough in the region.
In such a wonderful time of the year, we need to take advantage of the coolness and warmness of the weather at the same time, which makes it perfect to go for such activities as walking, trekking and hiking. And if the simple walking in the park or the usual picnic on the hills do not interest you anymore, then here is a brand new deal: take a trekking tour to the Asian Canyon!
It is located in the Ala Too mountains of Kyrgyzstan and called Komorchek. The blood red sand and unique shapes of those hills are breathtaking. Those sculptures of nature were created during the long period of time and shaped through variety of natural disasters and winds. Absolutely worth seeing!
How about this, guys: I will help you guys discover one more perfect destination for your favorite activity “paragliding” in the territories of Kyrgyzstan and in turn you will . . . Nothing, never mind! If only this discovery gives you guys more happiness and unforgettable momenets of flying in future, that is the greatest accomplishment of mine!
So, the next destination is Karakol ski resort in Kyrgyzstan! By the time winter leaves the country, Karakol as well starts turning into the beautiful greenfield, so the people could enjoy summer activities, in this case paragliding. Watch and enjoy how it is like to fly over the slopes of Karakol in the video below!
It fantastic that Suusamyr valley, that I introduced to you guys last time can offer more than what I said before. Its opportunities vary according to the season in the country. For instance, winter has almost left Kyrgyzstan and adventure lovers are now looking forward to the activities other than skiing and snowboarding…
Paragliding is one of the first choice of any youth, if you get interested and ask them. It is a dream come true to those, who still believe that there is a bird living inside them, which should be set free! It is the perfect gift for those, who have been dreaming of looking at the world from the highest point as possible, other than on the airplanes.
The valley of Suusamyr is one of the best places to go for this extreme adventure. First of all, it is safer than any other destination and second, it actually is worth going up in order to enjoy the view of that gorgeous valley!
Asia is rich with mountains, brilliant with their alpine lakes and special with the fact that most of them are absolutely untouched. However, what else could be unreachable for us – people nowadays? Almost nothing!
So, there are still ways to climb the highest and most virgin peaks of Kyrgzstan as well. By the way, it is one of those activities, that are getting more and more popular in the country. People are chosing the huge goals to reach, so here as well taking Suusamyr valley, for instance, as a destination.
Enjoying the heart of Tian Shan is of course possible with only helicopter, so this also gives an amazing chance to enjoy heli-skiing at the same time!
Other than skiing and skating, Kyrgyzstan offers another activity, which requires a bit more of a strength, patience and determination. That is ice climbing, for those, who always go forward and look for challenges in life.
Since almost ninety percent of the country is made of mountains, there are incredibly many choices, which you can make according to your own wish, location from where it would be closer. You will also have the choice of any level, which you would liketo go for.
One of the first recommendations I would make is the Ak Sai glacier. The reason is that you guys are already familiar with its location – Ala Archa gorge. The view of Ala Archaitself is so beautiful, so just imagine observinig it from one of its most gorgeous glaciers!
Since winter is also coming to an end, I would like to hurry to inform you guys more about winter activities to do. It is actually not that late to try them, since in many places, the mountains keep the perfect snow condition even when the spring comes in.
What I would like to share with you today is the tour with snowmobiles. They are super cool “snow motorbikes”, which can give you the huge amount of adrenaline and fun! They somehow remind people of modern version of slays from childhood. The difference is, they seem to be safer and faster.
Below is the lucky people, who got the snowmobile adventures started:
I have introduced you to the couple of cool places to go in winter. However, the best one is yet to be discovered. So, let us get this trip started!
Everyone in Kyrgyzstan knows that despite there is a huge number of mountains and the activities they offer everywhere in the country, the best ones among them are located in the northern part. More exactly in Issyk Kul province. Not only in summer, but also in winter this province overtakes other regions with its amazing opportunities and beauty.
That famous ski base in the north is known as Karakol. It is located in the city, which is also called the same way. Karakol is famous for its perfect conditions of snow, variety of activities it offers, including skiing, freeride, snowboarding, heli-skiing and much more.
The prices seem a bit high for the locals, however, the service provided and the conditions offered are almost in the same level with other resorts abroad, which are at least twice more expensive.
Please make sure you add this to your winter trip plan list, since it is one of the best activities of all time! Just as you see in the picture, we are talking about skating.
Why am I making a big deal though? Is it not possible to find a skating rink anywhere in the city? Well, maybe. However, this time I am talking about not the typical, but open-air-skating experience!
Open-air-rink is something, where you can feel the freedom of moving with almost no limits to the ice “beneath your wings”. This is the perfect place to learn if you are new to this sport as well, because unlike indoor skating rinks, there are no barriers around on which you can rely on.
So, wherever you are, try to look for such attraction. If you happen to be in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, go directly to “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. It is pretty close to the city and worth seeing!
