Asian Patagonia 2022

The nature of Kyrgyzstan is amazing. Its mountain landscapes are various in different corners of the Republic.  «Ak-Sai Travel» 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!!!

He brought them up as warriors and was very happy with the result. What do you need more when you get old? But a war started and both sons were killed in the battles. And then the man who got out of his mind because of the grief and sorrow, rose his arms up to the sky and asked Allakh: Oh, Allakh! You give the lifes, you take them. Return my sons to me, and take my life instead. Let it be so!» And Allakh heard his pray, and the ground opened and high peaks rose up on the spot. Many centuries went on, and people call the two bastions, standing next to each other at the beginning of Karavshin river, the names of the two sons Asan (4230 m) and Usen (4378 m).
