Explore the remarkable alpine scenery suited for hikers, horseback riders, mountain climbers, and skiers at Ala-Archa Gorge.

In addition to the very rare snow leopard, the reserve contains many interesting geological formations, river valleys, large glaciers, and ski areas at altitudes over 4,000 m (13,000 ft).

  • An intact nature. We're running out of those bubble up trees. Very nice bike trails. Some of the houses that work has turned to tourism. You can camp here they do families hostels.
