Description: This one day-long hike takes up in Alamedin valley just 40 km South of Bishkek - capital city of Kyrgyzstan. Here in 1984 was built the spa complex based on local radon hot springs. Further up the valley there is an Alamedin waterfall about 25 m high. The hike provides the travelers with beautiful and picturesque scenery of Kyrgyz range: high glaciated summits and mountain ranges, birch forests and juniper groves.
Route: The route begins with 40 km drive to Alamedin valley located on the northern slopes of Kyrgyz range. The vehicle can go up to the small gate at the end of the road and just a few metres before the spa complex. From here the trail continues another 7 km up through the stunning mountain scenery to Alamedin waterfall. Along with hiking a good idea can be a horse riding along the valley but some pre-arrangements needed as this service is not always available.
