"Ala Archa" Nizhnyaya Ala-Archa by Eish
Nizhnyaya Ala-Archa Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 6 photos
Our last day in Bishkek and we chose to go to Ala Archa.
Once again, the devastation that the Kyrgyz weather wreaks on their infrastructure horrified me. We saw a road and bridge that had been washed away by a mudslide that had prevented us visiting Ala Archa 3 weeks' before. Houses in a village were devastated, some with rooms tilted at angles or completely washed away. There was a stone and mud "path" through the middle of the village - houses had once been there but had been washed away.
One person was killed and 4 people were still missing.
Once we got past the wreckage, and into the gorge (gorgeous!), the boys came alive! What a pleasure for them to see the scenery and to experience lunch the the children and I had so many times.
- Pros:Close to Bishkek: accessible, beautiful
- Cons:Close to Bishkek: can have many people
We had a picnic under a happiness tree - the usual bread, cheese, sausages, tomato, cucumber and of course tea. Some... more travel advice
