Introduction

A wide mountain pasture at the conflux of three valleys 15km north of Semenovka village, Kyrchyn (Кырчын) jailoo (summer pasture) is an excellent base for day hikes or horse treks into the surrounding mountains. There's a 100som fee to enter the valley, which in theory goes towards conservation activities.

During the biennial World Nomad Games, the otherwise quiet pasture comes alive as a massive ethno-village of over one hundred yurts pops up here for a week to provide cultural attractions and touristic services to visitors.
