One Day Hike to Ala Archa National Park!
Ala Archa is a great place for a one-day trek into the mountains near Bishkek. During the Soviet Union, this was a legendary place for serious mountaineering climbers. Present day it’s a great place to see snowcapped mountains and large glacier walls. There are many day options in the Ala Archa Area.
Option 1: I will guide you to the Ala Archa National Park to the Ala Archa Waterfall. The trek is straight forward, we would start at the Ala Archa park and trek for 3-4 hours one way to the waterfall where we would have lunch in the valley and have an amazing view of the mountains. It’s a great hike for a beginner that wants to see a bit of the mountains, but does not want to push them self too hard. After the trek, we will return to Bishkek where you will be dropped off at your guesthouse.
Level of difficulty: Easy/Medium
8:30 am is a great time to start the tour, I’m very flexible but I want to show you as much as possible in one day.
6:00 pm is a great time to be back in Bishkek at your guesthouse or at a local café in the center.
Cost for the 1-day tour is:
My flat rate guiding cost + a simple car with gas 95 dollars per day per group. I can guide 6 people.
It's possible to extend this day tour with other tours in the Bishkek area or a small part of a bigger tour throughout Kyrgyzstan. If you were to add horseback riding in SonKul that would be amazing or a jeep tour to Kol Suu you would be blown away from the realness of Naryn!
