Description

Located in the Jalal-Abad Region of Kyrgyzstan, Arslanbob is one of the best places in Central Asia for ski trips. Winter activities are becoming very popular in this area, and, year after year, people from all over the world come here to get a taste of these thrilling white mountains. If you are looking for an adventure and you love skiing, I invite you to join me on this exciting trip!

Arslanbob offers everything you need to fall in love with its landscapes and sport activities. The Fergana mountains separate the cold Tien-Shan Mountains from the hot plains of Fergana Valley, creating the perfect weather for ski tours.

On this occasion, I propose to you a 6-Day ski experience around different places in Arslanbob. The famous walnut forest will be the highlight of our trip! From 1500 to 2000 meters above sea level, we will find the best slopes for our ski adventure. My favorite part of it is to ski through the largest walnut forest on earth, surrounded by those ancient trees! I guarantee you will have a fabulous time!

However, this spectacular woodland forest is not the only attraction in the area. We will also be skiing down the slopes of Boobash-Ata Mountain (4430m) and admiring the best landscapes that Arslanbob has to offer!

In this program we will reach 3000m. Therefore, you need to be experienced in ski touring and be physically prepared for this challenge!

The Arslanbob mountains are my playground! And I will be excited to show you around. Send me a request to book this trips and immerse yourself in this white paradise. I will be happy to guide you through it!
