It is a popular place for hiking, skiing and mountaineering including trips to more than 20 glaciers. It covers the area of 200 km2 - mostly forested valleys, waterfalls and rivers rich in trout. The altitude of ranges varies from 1500m to the highest point 4895m (Peak Semenov Tien Shanskii). Several rare species of fauna and especially traditionally revered juniper trees are under protection in the Natural Park.

Day 2. Ala Archa Bishkek city

After breakfast climb a bit upper where a breathtaking panoramic view opens up. You will see Ak Sai Glacier and several 4000+ peaks.
Ratsek Hut is a name familiar to any fan of climbing who have ever been to the Natural Park Ala Archa. Ratsek cabin was originally a small stone building that served as a safe shelter for hikers and climbers on their way. Now it is a base camp, located at an altitude of 3400 m, on the way to the glacier Ak-Sai. The place is very convenient because here you can easily set the tent, start climbing the highest peaks, or take part in mountaineering and climbing trainings.
After lunch around 1pm we start descending to the parking place where we get on our car/ bus and return to Bishkek.
