The nature of Kyrgyzstan is amazing. Its mountain landscapes are various in different corners of the Republic. «Asia Adventures» presents a new trekking program which goes along the gorges of Turkestan mountain range and takes you to the heart of Pamir-Alai mountain system, right to peak Ak-Suu.
Turkestan mountain range region is quite interesting and unusual. It reminds South American Patagonia – same wilderness, winds blowing through, mountain streams with pure water, alpine meadows, herds of yaks grazing peacefully, glaciers surrounded with 5000+ meters Peaks and not a sign of civilization...
But still there is one significant advantage of Asian mountains from the South American analog –stable and warm weather.
The mountain trails going above the steeps, wild nature, panoramic views of the canyons crowned by snow-white peaks and treks to the foot of peak Piramidalnyi (5509m), which is the highest point of Turkestan range, peak Ak-Suu (5355m), Slesova (4240m) – all these will leave an unforgettable impression on everybody!!!
