3 or 5 day walk or horse ride to Sary Chelek

Aïgul is a friend of mine, she is a guide passionate about her country and trekking. Together with two local guides, Mirza and Nurbek, they created this trek. They understood that even if the country is not very touristic, some travellers are looking for more confidential treks in the middle of nature.
Sary Chelek is perfect for that, it is a
beautiful natural park that is not touristic at all.

This is the ideal trek to be immersed in nature while being accompanied by local, experienced and competent guides.

Major advantage: this trek is really unknown to tourism. I did it in July 2019 and in 5 days we only met 2 hikers.
