Expo Milano 2015

Hell guys! Today I would like to share something really cool, which will help you choose where your next destination is for this summer! Please welcome Expo Milano!

Expo Milano is actually an amazing event, which is held each five years in different countries. This is where they have the exhibitions of scientific and cultural treasures, news and discussions. The main idea of such expo is to make the world a better place to live in, to build and strengthen bridges among countries in the world.

Each country represents the most precious ideas and treasures they have during this event, so it is a very good chance to get to know more things, which are impossible to find on usual internet surfing. So, here is one of the coolest itroductions, welcome to Kyrgyzstan!

Healing Jalal Abad

The Jalal Abad province is “hiding” something else that this time as well, we cannot leave it! So, what can that be? A place? Food? Tree?

All in one, if to say honestly. There is an incredibly precious water spring in the province, which is famous all over the country. It is not a simple, but a mineral spring and is used for not only quenching the thirst in summer, but also for curing variety of illnesses.

Therefore, they built special sanatoriums around it to make it even more convenient for the visitors, who came in search of healing and relaxation. There are special spa procedures with the spring water and the mineral clay.

However, the one does not really have to visit the province in order to taste its water; it is sold in bottles almost all over the country! It is enough just to visit a grocery shop and there you go!

Looking Wider

Hello, dear friends! Hope you are all having a great day and ready to start another virtual tour with me! What we are gonna do today is to zoom out from the picture of those beautiful waterfalls that I mention last time in the province of Jalal Abad. What we will now see is this: the world’s largest walnut forest!

Pretty surprising for such a small country of Kyrgyzstan to have this enormous treasure, is it not? They call this forest as Arslanbob… This place now keeps thousands of walnut trees, which are hundreds of years old each!

There are some legends that Alexander the great also visited this place and took some branches of walnut to with him. This is how walnut was spread around Europe and got the name as “Greek Walnuts”. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?

Seeing this forest in spring is incredibly exciting! However, if you would prefer trying fresh walnuts rather than just enjoying fresh green color of the forest, then you are welcome to visit in late autumn as well!

Trip to Waterfalls

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!

South America in KG

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.

Springtime Do’s

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!

Born to Fly…

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!

Reaching Virgin Peaks

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!

Ice Climbing

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!
