Jiptick pass: Trekking from Osh city to Sarymogol 3 days

DESCRIPTION: Experience the full diversity of the Alay region’s animal and plant life on this thrilling tour. It is possible to see wild goats and (if you are very lucky) sheep on the craggy mountain slopes. Herds of wild yaks can be found near the passes. There is a profusion of wildflowers carpeting the mountain valleys and wild cherry trees mixed with ever-present juniper to delight the senses. Stunning views of Pamir Alay mountain range opens up when you reach the Jiptick pass. Hope for good weather.
