Ala Archa National Park - 1 Day Hike
Ala Archa National Park in the south of Bishkek is an amazing place for short and long hikes. You will see summits between 4000 and 5000m high, glaciers, forests etc. It's also a destination for many alpinists that I will be happy to tell you about. I am a professional alpinist and have spent a lot of time in this park!
The price includes transportation; entrance fees and your guide for a group up to 5. Please message me if you are more to organize another car.
I have a slackline as well and if you have children; I can bring a rope and harnesses, make a short zip-line for them and show them how to make knots :)
If you want to go to Ala Archa during winter I will adapt the program.
For a one-day hike; you can choose between two options:
Option 1: Panorama in the forest + waterfall
This is the easiest of the two options, available for all, but will keep you busy all day. I can of course shorten this if you are travelling with young children.
In the morning we will hike to a large forest in one of the valleys of Ala Archa. In the forest, there is a memorial for local and soviet alpinists that I will show you. There is also a great view on some of the most beautiful summits in the park.
We will have lunch by a river and then walk up a second valley where you will see a beautifl waterfall.
Option 2: Ak Sai Glacier (3200m)
The second option is for trained hikers - it's a long and steep walk but definitely worth it! We will hike up from base camp (1900m) to Ak Sai glacier, which is also a base camp for alpinists. You will be able to see the glacier and splendid summits from very close.
