Come with Yaroslav, IFMGA-certified mountain guide, on this one-day guided hiking tour in the spectacular Konorchek Canyons in Kyrgyztan!

1 Day

All year




Also known as the Eolian Castles, the Konorchek Canyons are located a 136 km from the capital city of the country, Bishkek, in Boom Gorge.This beautiful area is a great destination  all year round to enjoy a one-day hiking trip!

We will start at 8 am and drive about 2 hours to the Train bridge in Boom Gorge, where we live our car. Then we will trek up along a small and charming river called Kurganterek where we will discover a narrow gorge with confluent stream. Hiking through a narrow labyrinth of rocky walls with several easy-scrambling parts will make you feel like a true explorer!

After 1,5 hours of hiking we will arrive to a spectacular wide-open area with Eolian castles ahead. As a result of thousand of year of wind erosion, nature has given us the opportunity to enjoy this amazing landscape of canyons, where their quaint walls resemble the ruins of ancient castles.

In this magical place time seems to stop and participants will be transported to another planet where time flows quite differently. After a beautiful lunch in a great panoramic spot we will have time to take pictures and enjoy the surrounding views.

During this one-day guided hiking tour you will discover the unique nature of Kyrgyzstan. So if you are ready for this adventure in the Konorchek Canyons, request to book this trip and join me on this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

We had a really nice time with Yaroslav and his driver Daniel. We were skitouring in the end of February in Karakol and Jyrgalan. Yaroslav is a very professional guide and knows the region very well. Thanks to him we always found the best spots for powder snow. The hostels that he selected were all excellent and clean. Both, Yaroslav and his driver Daniel are very punctual and reliable. They helped us in all matters and were very warm-hearted and fun! all in all we had an amazing week and are very thankful for the fun time that we had together! I would defently book again with Yaroslav!
