A stunning one-day tour for nature lovers with outdoor activities and horseback riding! Instead of usual hiking tour to Ala Kul lake which takes three full days (this is a fact), we offer you go to the lake and back in one day and get fantastic pleasure, unique experience.
Early in the morning we go to the Altyn-Arashan gorge on a prepared off-road SUV. The road to the gorge is difficult to cross, covered with mud and stones. This all things add extreme to the trip. The road from Karakol to Altyn-Arashan takes about two hours. Reaching the place, we leave the car and continue the journey on horses. Our horse ride will last up to the Alakul pass, and then – we start our hiking up to the top of the pass, from which we will have an unforgettable panorama of the Karakol mountain peaks (5260 meters) and Dzhigit (5170 meters), and our main goal is to reach amazing beautiful Ala Kul lake.
We will have a picnic on the pass, enjoying the wonderful views around and then go down to the Altyn-Arashan gorge. After arriving to the car, we will visit the Altyn-Arashan hot springs, get some rest and continue our way to Karakol. The way back is no less interesting and difficult, we will return to the city in the evening.
A day trip to Ala Kul lake is a great and unique adventure that you will remember not only because of challenging road, but also a magnificent landscapes of the Tien Shan mountains, which are located far from Karakol city and not so many people can reach it.
