This park, in the Tian Shan mountains is only a short drive from Bishkek, but it feels a lot further considering how high the mountains are, how frivolously the forest grows and how rugged the terrain is, including glaciers and gorges as well as cliffs and steep river valleys. This is the perfect backdrop for campers, trekkers, horse trekkers, climbers and skiers.

The park's peaks rise to altitudes of 4,895 meters from the entrance at 1,500 metres.
