Description

I have the pleasure to invite you to a 1-day hike to the beautiful waterfalls of Alamedin Gorge.

Alamedin Gorge is located 30 km far from Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. It is probably one of the favorite places of local people because here they find a big source of mineral water. Indeed, it is the second biggest gorge of the country.

The hot spring waters of Alamedin Gorge has a average temperature of 30 °C most part of the year. Moreover, they come from the deepest of the mountain where temperatures reach +56 °C.

Besides, mineral water is not just for swimming. It has a lot of healing properties. That’s why the Alamedin Gorge is a very important spot of the region.

Thanks to its height, the area has a dense vegetation where you can find juniper and birches trees. The floodplain is also covered by a great variety of bushes. What’s more, you may discover some mushrooms on the river bank and some red lands due to the big amount of strawberries.

This amazing Alamedin Gorge one-day trekking will start in a holiday house of the zone. We’ll hike for about 1:30 hs entering to the Salyk section. Then, the first water springs appear on the left. We will continue hiking up to a 12-meter waterfall and after that, to the second biggest glacial spot of the Kyrgyz ridge.

Once we are in the gorges of Ashu-Tor and Altyn-Tor we can admire great lakes and hanging glaciers. Altyn-Tor is also called “the golden place” due to its unique combination of streams, trees and forest.

Winter in Alamedin Gorge is also really nice. In fact, the way to the frozen waterfall takes no more than 2 hours. During this season, you will notice that the waterfall is completely frozen but water keeps falling inside it.

So, this trip can be enjoyed any time of the year. You can ask me for next departures and any other doubts you have. I await your contact and will be glad to guiding you in this awesome hiking day.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in what is now Bishkek, the Capital City of Kyrgyz Republic (used to be Frunze, the Capital of Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic) and live there ever since.

I started guiding professionally in 2004. I guide groups and individuals in technical and high altitude climbing, ski-tours, backcountry skiing, rock-climbing, ice climbing. I can also provide training facilities and organize trekking programs.

My main priorities in guiding are client safety and expedition success and therefore, my professional motto is “Never climb with strangers”.

In 2011, I finished my training with the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide School. The school is supported by Mammut and the Swiss and British Mountain Guide Associations and follows the IFMGA standards. Upon completion of the course and passing necessary tests I was qualified as a Mountain Guide. I am also qualified in mountain rescue and first aid by Mountaineering Instructor School in Kyrgyzstan (2012) and a member of the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA) since the Autumn of 2009 where I serve as an instructor and examiner for the National Mountain Guide courses.

In my 13 years of guiding, I have worked all over Tien-Shan and Pamir in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and China and East Sayan and Lake Baikal areas in Russia. I have arranged several ski tour and backcountry skiing programs in the Ala Archa national park, Suusamyr valley, Kyrghyz Ala Too, Chong Kemin gorge, Kumtor glacier, and Terskey Ala Too.

In 2009-2016 I worked as a high altitude guide at the Lenin Peak (7134 m), Khan Tengri Peak (7010 m), Pobeda Peak (7439 m), and Muztag Ata Peak (7546 m). As a mountaineering expert, I also have participated in 6 expeditions.

Presently I have over 100 ascents of different difficulty. The most significant of them are: Pobeda peak (7439 m) 1 ascent; Lenin peak (7134 m) 13 ascents; Muztag Ata (7546 m) 1 ascent; Khan Tengri (7010 m) 1 ascent; Korona peak 1st tower ED2 Smirnov route, winter conditions; Free Korea peak ED1 George Lowe route, winter conditions; Bachachekey peak 4 routes ED1 Kusmenko, Shwab, Polik, Ilyshenko; Ak-Too peak TD route, first ascent, winter conditions; Tarasova(Slovenia) TD route, winter conditions; Simagina peak TD+ route, winter conditions.

My sport climbing level: 7a-7b on sight, 7c-8a red point.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested to come and discover the mountains of my region.
