Jan, Feb, Mar
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!
We will meet at the airport of Osh city and drive 200 km to Arslanbob Village in our private transfer. It will take us about 4 hours to get there. We will check in in the guest house, and have lunch there. After that, there will be a briefing about our week program and avalanche safety. We will check our equipment, and after making sure we have everything, we will head to our first challenging skiing activity: the walnut forest near the village!
After breakfast, we will drive to our skiing areas. We have four different places to enjoy and there will be different ascents and descents in each one. Lunches will be during the outing and dinners will take place in our accommodation to have some rest for the next adventure
We have two different options for you to choose from: we can spend one extra day skiing, saying goodbye to this beautiful paradise and be back to Osh city at night. Or, we can head back to the city early in the morning after breakfast. There, we will enjoy what the city has to offer. The main attraction in Osh city is the Sacred Mountain Sulaiman-Too, where you can find different sanctuaries and ancient caves with petroglyphs in it!. You can also visit the History Museum or the Asian Market and get a taste of the Asian food before you leave.
Our transfer will take you to the airport where we´ll have to say goodbye, hoping to see each other again, in another adventure!

I am a certified mountain guide, trained at the Kyrgyz Mountain Guide Association (KMGA). I have been working as a mountain guide since 2000. I have more than 20 summit ascents with clients on 7000 m mountains. I have been skiing for all my life. I completed education at Ski Instructor School (NRLI) on the ISIA system. I have experience in organising and conduction of ski tour programs on the territory of Kyrgyzstan for more than 10 years, I have also worked as a guide in heli-ski programs. I skied from many peaks in the territory of Kyrgyzstan, one of the famous is Lenin peak (7134 m), Korona peak (4860 m), and also skied north side of Elbrus Peak (5621 m) in Caucasus.
In addition to ski tours and mountaineering, I organize trekking programs and jeep tours.
In my spare time, I spend time searching for new interesting areas for outdoor activities.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
