The Ala Archa Glacier is located in the Ala Archa National Park, a protected alpine area in the Tian Shan Mountains of Kyrgyzstan.

Ala Archa Glacier is a very famous ski spot with a curious story behind. Many years ago, during the Soviet period, a big ski resort was build. Nowadays, it is completely abandoned due to some obscure myths, never fully revealed…

If you have 5 minutes, I invite you to read this very nice article which has been written about 2 dutch friends I guided there in 2017.

Whatever, Ala Archa Glacier is an attraction for skiers and snowboarding lovers.
