Ala-Archa is a national natural park, area is a specially popular and loved by many climbers and tourists.It’s located 40km from the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Here everyone will choose for themselves rest for the soul – whether it is just walking in the fresh air, or sports trips. All the way goes along the path and opens before itself the wonderful world of flora and fauna. There is a wide variety of herbs, flowers, bushes and firs. If you are lucky, you can see such representatives of the fauna as mountain goats, pikas, squirrels. Waterfalls and rivers along the ascent path deserve special attention; in warm weather, they give freshness and coolness; during the cold, they freeze, forming ice cascades, allowing sportsmen of any level of physical training to practice well.
