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.
