Hidden on the 1st floor of the building, it is here that you can buy detailed contour maps of Kyrgyzstan. They have 1:200 000 maps of the whole country, in Cyrillic. (Good opportunity to brush up on your Russian letters.) I have read that they have a good English map of Ala-Archa as well as some other more detailed hiking maps, but we did not try them.

What to pay: Relatively little - few 100 som for 8 maps in 2003

Address: Keiv 107
