Orientation…

I know some of you guys just cannot wait to experience an amazing activity of Paragliding, so I will not make you wait so much and jump in to the main topic, that is where to go in Kyrgyzstan for paragliding?

There are two perfect destinations in the country and their location is also perfectly spread to the North and South of the country. The one in North is famous Tian Shan and another in South is Pamir Alay, the motherland of a great individual – Kurmanjan Datka. So, you can make the closest and the most comfortable choice for you according to your location.

However, what I definitely need to make you aware of is that Tian Shan is visited more often, more specifically the valley of Suusamyr (which is not unfamiliar to you). It may also mean that the constructors must have much more experience in this field according to the great number of flights they have aleady accomplished.

Paragliding is soon!


Here came one of the greatest seasons of the year – spring! It is the period of nature’s awakening; this is when every single one of us feel the great relief after the long and cold days of winter. There is no person, who would not thank Lord for such a chance to witness this period again breathing the fresh air all around.

Even the nature lets us know how beautiful it is to be born again and start growing. Fragrance of flowers and fresh grasses are all around and the warm rains bring coolness to our souls and wash any kind of despair and sadness away from them. And the sun does not get tired of sharing its smile as much as possible!

When else could it be more perfect to go and observe the world than this period?! Especially looking at the Earth from high above, for instance, while paragliding! You got me, the time is coming to do, very soon!

Skiing in Kazakhstan

Kyrgyzstan is cool with a whole bunch of offers for winter activities and wonderfully suitable destinations for them. However, it is not right to say that it is the only place in Central Asia to visit in winter.

This time I would like to invite you guys to take a virtual tour out of Kyrgyzstan. Kazakhstan, in my opinion, would be one of the best options, since I have personally been there and was left with a lot of impression by one of its great ski bases.

They called it “Shymbulak”, cool ski resort, which is said to be working even in the month of May! So, let us check out the beauty of Kazakh mountains together!

Heli-skiing in Celestials

It is different to look at the beautiful houses during househuntings and actually living in them. The one can enjoy and rate the look of it, however, only the one, who lives in that house knows the best and most about it. So it is with just taking a look at the mountains from the ground and climbing them.

For instance, a lot of people share their excitements about seeing the Celestial mountains on the plane to Bishkek or Osh. However, it would sound a lot more exciting and breathtaking if they actually took a stop at the peaks and enjoyed spending a quality time, for example by skiing or snowboarding!

One of the best places to go for those sports is Suusamyr  valley of Tian Shan mountains range. With the height of more than 4000 meters, they remain virgin and only a few people dare to make it a destination!

Paragliding

Winter is finally coming to an end and the beautiful sunny days of spring are really close. What should we do? Of course, get ready to enjoy those days with fun activities! Activity number one is paragliding!

This is one of the most incredibly exciting and extreme activities, which is in fact not easy to decide and go for. However, if your dream to fly like a bird is truly strong, then you can somehow find braveness, just like the heroes of the movie “Intouchables”. If you remember that moment, you know how much of a smile it brings to the audience!

Modern Sleighs

I think there is every single reason to call myself as one of the happiest people in the world. The thing is, I lived a REAL childhood! Not in front of the computer or other digital gadjets playing video games, but having fun out on the playground: running around, walking on the sands and sleigh riding in winter!

However, even in our days, I still see some hope that there are pretty great opportunities to make life interesting. The develpoment of technology made it possible not only for kids, but also for the grown-ups to be able to enjoy the same activities, which previously belonged only to the children.

For example, there appeared snowmobiles, which can replace slays from childhood! Those pretty huge machines will not make the elders look silly going for kids’ activity!

Another ski resort…

I hope you guys do not mind another blog about ski bases, since we stil have a chance to enjoy winter sports. So, today’s theme will be Orlovka ski resort!

This ski base is also located in the territory of Chuy region, very close to Bishkek city. Just drive about ninety km from the capital and there you are – in one of the greatest ski resorts of the country!

Orlovka is one of those destinations, where the visitors, starting from the skiing fans up to the professional skiers can have as much fun as they wish! No matter who they come with, whether it is their friends, colleagues, family members or neighbors, Orlovka can be the perfect option to spend winter days with so much joy!

There are all services necessary for having a quality time, including rentals, ski lifts, hotels and of course cafes, where you can try not only local, but also international dishes, available.

Kashka Suu

Kashka Suu… One if the most breathtaking places, I have seen so far. Located just aabout an hour from the capital of Kyrgyzstan, the place can be called as a ski base and summer camp at the same time.

I remember staying there in summer. It was the middle of season, when it felt impossible to even breathe in downtown during the day. Kashka Suu was the place, which could help us cool down and take a deep breathe of the fresh air as much as we wanted.

Nights were just enchating: since we were on top of the mountains, we felt as if closer to the sky and that was when I saw the biggest amount of stars ever in my whole lifetime!

This place is the same enchanting in winter and people still go there, thanks to the perfect conditions for skiing and snowboarding.

Ice Age

Here is another amazing place to have a wonderful time on winter vacations: skating rink just outside Bishkek city. Do not think there are not any inside the city; the thing is, that one is not indoors, but an open air skating rink!

They call it Uncle Tom’s Cabin – the cosiness not far away from the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The place is perfect for the family weekends, picnics with friends and colleagues. What makes Uncle Tom’s cabin so special is that it can be a nice destination all year round – in summer it is a coolness by the river, in winter perfect place for ice skating.

Winter Wonderland

Just a couple days ago, we saw the old year off and met the New Year in our country with the whole world! It was full of emotions, new hopes, new wishes and plans for future. Most of the students and workers are enjoying the vacations at the moment, which gives a perfect chance to organize wonderful winter-break.

Unfortunately, this New Year was without snow in our country. However, we still have some wonderful places to go and enjoy snow – the real winter atmosphere. One of the best of them is the national park, called Ala-Archa. Unlike usual parks with attractions in city centers, Ala-Archa is situated on the mountains just an hour away from the capital of Kyrgyzstan – Bishkek city. There are no attractions at all to ride on, however the view of nature in the park is to die for!

In winter Ala-Archa turns into a winter wonderland. The fur-trees and peaks covered with perfect whiteness take the breath away immediately. You can do nothing but start running around, play with snow and laugh just like a kid!

Ala-Archa is a perfect escape from the urban chaos. It is a guaranteed peace and harmony with nature. There are some cute cabins for those, who would like to stay for some days as well.
