One of the top things to do in Kyrgyzstan and it's only 30 minutes outside of Bishkek. I spent a night camping here and did a day hike on a separate occasion. The trails are well marked and a range of level for all hikers. I went with a guide to make it easier. You can find and join various groups heading to Ala Archa daily through trekking companies.

This is the most beautiful spots just outside of the capital city of Bishkek. Be prepared for camping and adventure in the winter or summer-as it's beautiful and possible to experience this park any time of the year. There are glaciers, waterfalls and different peaks to hike, depending on your level. This is probably Kyrgyzstan's most popular site because of it's close proximity to the city. You're bound to run into locals, especially in the summer and on weekends, enjoying a picnic and the fresh air. It is best to plan at least 2-3 days (or more) in the park, and at least an overnight.

Though there are countless spots to go hiking in Kyrgyzstan, Ala-Archa National Park is the closest to the capital city Bishkek and without a doubt the most popular for local residents. On weekends in the summer Ala-Archa can get downright crowded with picnickers taking a break from the city to get out into nature. Hit the trails, however, and after ten or fifteen minutes of walking you'll have left the crowds behind. Take your own picnic, though, as the food options in the park are limited.

De nombreux circuits sont disponibles à Bichkek. Choisissez un guide local ou allez en solo, et ayez une aventure pour un jour ou deux. Il se trouve à une courte distance en voiture de la capitale.
