Grigoriev and Semenov gorge. Kyrgyzstan
Months to visit: May to October
Transport: From Cholpon-Ata to Semenov and grigorev gorge you can take a taxi.
Recommendations: It is recommended to take a guided tour to see the best parts of the gorge.
Long-trodden auto/moto/bicycle and hiking trails lead to high mountain lakes, ponds and waterfalls. Massive Tien Shan first rise on the slopes of the entire gorge, interspersed with pines and birches.
In these locations, hospitable yurt camps of nomads are generously scattered, focused on meeting old hat and new tourists. The camps operate during the warm season. Here tourists get acquainted with history, culture, customs and traditions, cuisine, crafts, games of nomads, and, of course, horseback riding.
One day is enough to pass the entire gorge, and a horse ride speeds up the process, although it is difficult to leave the place of pristine nature without meeting the dawn in the traditions of nomadism under the measured stories of legends and tales of colorful shepherds.
The location is suitable for everyone to visit, because of the comfortable infrastructure:
Grigorievskoe and Semenovskoe gorges are inspiring places, and here you can easily find a corner for meditation and unity with yourself.
Someone finds an adrenaline charge during a multi-day tour to the very heights to meet the grazing semi-wild yaks.
