Immersing in local Kyrgyz culture and food
This trek lies between the southern shore of the Issyk Kul Lake and the northern slopes of the Terskey Alatau (Ala Too) mountain range (Central Tian Shan Mountains). This beautiful remote region is surrounded by high peaks around Issyk Kul, an enormous freshwater Central Asian lake. Terskey Alatau Range forms a majestic wall that extends for 340km along the lake’s southern shore, separating this paradise from the rest of the mountain area.
The Terskey Alatau Range with an average altitude of about 4,500m, offers very diverse landscapes such as pointed snow-capped peaks around 5,000m in altitude, wild coniferous forests on the northern slopes, ridge formed by red sandy rocks, and the Djhety-Oguz rivers and gorges.
You will also enjoy the views of Karakol Peak (5,218m), Djhety-Oguz Peak (5,181m), Djhigit Peak (5,172m) and Aksu Peak (5,020m). Travellers will immerse in the freshness of fragrant fir forests and experience the healing effects of hot mineral springs (Djhialisu, Altin-Arashan). We will also spend a couple of days on the warm sandy shore of famous Lake Issyk Kul.
Best season to attempt this trek is between July to September.
