What Else?

Good question about the place that I praised so much lately, is it not? What can the visitors enjoy at the Heart of Celestial mountains? Let me tell you: Suusamyr offers more than just skiing!

Since the days are getting warmer as the sign of beautiful spring and summer seasons ahead, the plans of ours will also be connected with future weekends and breaks. Very soon the snow that once covered the valleys will melt down and the fresh green grasses will replace it. That is perfect time to go, see and enjoy the beauty of awakening nature! The best way of doing that is of course observing from above!

Paragliding is a very famous sport in Kyrgyzstan and often organized near Suusamyr valley. The moments spent above those heavenly slopes among the clouds are so precious and every single person deserves the happiness of trying it at least once in a lifetime!

This is how they do it!

Yes it is hard to reach, yes it takes so much strength, patience and experience to the Celestials, but you know what? If only the person has the wish, he can do it anyways, no matter how, what time and with whom! Only with this attitude have the people been able to climb the mountains and overcome the challenges on their ways and of course, at the end, they tasted the unforgettable and unique taste of victory, achievement and accomplishment! This is how they did it:

Heart of Celestials


There is a certain difference between just skiing and making the best of skiing. For example, some ski fans prefer taking the highest points possible to ski down from. How do they make it? Definitely by heli-skiing!

Helicopter makes it possible to reach the greatest peaks in almost no time and enjoy skiing from there. In Kyrgyzstan, heli-skiing is pretty popular and this is the only way to make it to the virgin peaks of the mountains.

The destination, which is visited the most often, is Suusamyr valley. It is located at the very center of Tian Shan mountain range, because of which they also call it the Heart of Celestials! The height of the peaks reach up to 4500 meters, which means the REAL rush of adrenaline through this skiing experience!

Orlovka


Wishing everyone to have a great day, I will go on to the next destinations for winter breaks. Make sure you put a bookmark here as well, because it really is worth visiting!

So, welcome to Orlovka ski base, which is located at the attitude of more than 1900 meters! This is one of nicest places to go for winter activities. It is also one of the closest ones to the Bishkek city, which makes it comfortable for locals and the tourists, who came to the capital of the country.

Just like any other standart ski bases, Orlovka has its own rentals for those, who came without necessary equipments, the cable cars to get up to the highest peak and observe the beauty above.

Orlovka is also called as a recreational center, because this is the place where people can not only ski or enjoy snowboarding, but also relax in the cozy cafes, trying variety of international dishes!

Kashka Suu

Thanks to the richness of Kyrgyzstan in mountains, Karakol ski resort in Issyk Kul is not the only place to be discussed about skiing.

Not that far from Bishkek city, there is a beautiful recreational complex, called Kashka Suu. Located among the mountains and hills, this place can be visited all year round. In summer as a cool destination to escape from the city’s stuffy atmosphere and in winter it is a beautiful winter wonderland.

There is also the ski lift, which can take you high up the mountain peaks so you can start skiing from there or just to observe the region from high above. Besides skiing, people also go for snowboarding in winter.

The whole day is actually enough for you to enjoy Kashka Suu if you live in the territory of Bishkek. However, if you come from further regions, then you may want to stay there overnight. This is also taken care of by the cozy cottages and cabins with all facilities.

Let’s go skiing!

Let me ask you whether or not this winter was interesting and full of adventures this year. If the answer is yes, then I can only be happy for you sincerely. If not then, I still think I have pretty much time to congratulate you anyways – we have almost 3 more weeks of winter!

Even though it seems like spring in Kyrgyzstan at the moment, the majestic mountains are still full of snow and winter spirit. It means that you can still go for some winter activities with your dear ones together. Why not to give yourself a chance to be fully relaxed and happy!

Where I advise you to go is the ski bases of Kyrgyzstan. There are plenty of them in almost all provinces, however, number one recommendation would be Karakol ski resort, which is located in Issyk Kul province. This place is famous not only within the country, but also to the people abroad.


 

Take Your Skates!


There is something you should definitely try in case you travel to Kyrgyzstan: do go for ice skating! It is true that nowadays even any small city has some skating rinks but they are usually indoor ones.

As you figures, I am offering the great ice skating experience on the open air rink! Just grab your skates and head towards “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”! It is one of those awesome places in Kyrgyzstan, which offer a huge area for real ice period!

The “cabin” has already become one of the most favorite destinations of families, friends and colleagues to go and have amazing holidays. The nature around is enchanting and makes the one return there again and again!

Healthy tours


Kyrgyzstan’s beauty not only enchants the visitor, but also has some healing effects in itself. For instance, the pearl of Kyrgyzstan, about which we talked about last time, is visited by tourists and locals not only for beach parties in summer, but also for health improvement reasons.

Issyk Kul lake is one of the biggest recreational areas in the country. It is very rich spa resorts, which provide the best procedures for the person’s health and relaxation. Acupuncture, mud treatments, variety of therapies are all included in the resorts of Issyk Kul area.

Not only the resorts’ treatments, but also the nature itself is so healing. The peaceful lake, its pristine, sky blue water and the majestic glaciers on the background are all what make the nature breathtakingly enchanting and healing to souls…

Pearl of Asia

Just like every country, Kyrgyzstan has a special treasure to be proud of. It is actually not the only one there is in the country but the most important and famous one. It is the second largest alpine lake in the whole world after the lake Titikaka – Issyk Kul.

The lake is located at the attitude of over 1600 meters above sea level, in the province under the same name, Issyk Kul. Its enormous size makes the lake look like a sea. There are more than 80 types of fish species in the lake.

There is a fact, which makes the lake a bit mysterious, that is there are some rivers that flow into the lake, but none which flows out of it. However, this does not affect the water level at all.

The beauty of the lake itself and the nature around decorated with glaciers, green trees and sunny beaches attract so many tourists from variety of countries for summer vacations.
