Tour description provided by Viator

Big and very interesting trip to the South part of Kyrgyzstan. In this trip will be everything – mountain passes, mountain lakes, beautiful natural parks, rivers and waterfalls, and even the largest walnut forest in Central Asia!
Day 1:  Our tour starts early in the morning – for the first day we will have to drive more than 600 km and spend about 12 hours on the road. After leaving Bishkek we will go far to the South part of the country to the small village Arkyt, located near the nature reserve Sary-Chelek. Through the longest tunnel in the country we will get to the Suusamyr valley, and then – through the Ala-Bel pass to the Chychkan gorge. We will arrive to our destination in the late afternoon. After accommodation in the guest house you will have dinner and rest after a long road.Day 2: After breakfast, we will go to the beautiful mountain lake – the heart of the Sary Chelek nature reserve. The road to the lake is very beautiful! Since we will spend all day in the reserve, we can make many stops in the most beautiful places. There are 7 different lakes in the reserve and we can explore a few of them! Since mobile communication is not working in the reserve, we can’t order lunch, but the guide will prepare a small picnic – tea and sandwiches in such a wonderful place! In the evening we will return to the guest house in Arkyt.Day 3: After breakfast, we will go further into the depth of the country – to the village  Arslanbob. It is located among the largest walnut forest in Central Asia. Arslanbob is not similar to other villages that we have seen before – it seems that we lost our way and came not to Kyrgyzstan, but to another country. This is an amazing experience! After lunch, we will go on excursion to the big waterfall, small waterfall and walnut forest, which offers a beautiful view of the whole Arslanbob. We will return to the guest house in the late afternoon, have dinner and go to rest.Day 4: Today we will go to the southern capital of Kyrgyzstan – Osh city. We will arrive in Osh in the afternoon, and after the accommodation at the hotel we will go for lunch. After lunch, we will visit the main attraction of the city – Sulayman-Too mountain. Sulayman-Too is equipped with excellent observation platforms, climbing to which we will see a panorama of the whole city. The evening will be pleasant and full of walks. We will return to the hotel after dinner.Day 5: Return to Bishkek. Again more than 600 kilometers and about 12 hours on the road. It will be a long day, but despite the fact that we will return on the same path, the view from the window will be new, already familiar places will open from a new side, and it will make our day intresting! Lunch and dinner will be in roadside cafes. We will return to Bishkek at night. After the tour we can take you to the hotel or directly to the Manas airport (without additional payment).
