Ala Mischuk Hike
Bag a peak in Naryn Ala Mischuk HikeBag a peak, right in Naryn! This hike takes you to the top of the highest of the triple peaks that loom over Naryn. It will take you 8-12 hours, but the views are spectacular.
This hike starts just behind the large park across from the westerly automobile bridge that crosses the Naryn River. Go through the park to the canal behind the park, then look for the small, concrete bridge that crosses the canal. Across that bridge, you'll see some houses up on a ledge. Climb up to the houses and along the street in front of them, which leads to a large valley. Follow the valley past the first green valley opening on the right as you climb. When you come to the second green valley (at 41º26'04”N, 76º06'17”E), follow it up through the trees. It's a long, steep climb. When you get up out of that valley, you'll see the peak above you up a long, steep, grassy slope. Climb up an enjoy the views!

Testimonials from my clients:
I had a lot of questions before my travel to Kyrgyzstan in the summer 2016. Contacted Alex and received detailed and very helpful information. We needed help arranging transport and homestay at Song kol lake as well as transportation from Naryn to Jalala-bad. All the information provided turned out to be very accurate and reliable.
I can positively recommend Alex for your planned travels in this fascinating region.
