KYRGYZSTAN TRAVEL DIARY – DAY 11 (ALA-ARCHA NATIONAL PARK - III)

by Antonio Gil July. 30, 2017 1109 views

The reserve is a small valley inside the gorge, its ridges are covered with eternal ice, and the slopes are the finest spruce forests. The streams flow down from the glaciers on the slopes, by flow down streams of melt water, which then are converted into Ala-Archa River. In 1976 Ala-Archa Kyrghyz State Park was created in Ala-Archa gorge, for the preservation of endangered rare species of animals, plants and the development of tourism and mountaineering. One of the main attractions of the reserve is a unique wildlife. Here you can see the snow leopard listed in the Red Book, and high in the valley lives a rare blue bird that the Kyrghyz call "a bird of happiness." Lots of other amazing flora and fauna forms live in the reserve, where hunting is strictly forbidden.

Isto já é praticamente o fim da viagem. O início tinha vistas simplesmente "out of this world". Muito obrigado Sabrina

Great series, as always, Antonio! Very interesting info and bonus video of the park! Thanks!
The person responsible for the "English" translation on the sign, must have "skipped" a few crucial lessons in his "studies"....(grin)

They had two or three signs like these throughout the park and all of them were laughable. Thanks dear friend.

#5 The translation to English puzzles me but at the same time it makes sense to me. How many days were you able to stay in this area. By the way I am so lucky you visited there. The images and the information you share opens my mind to the beauty and history more and more each time you post.

This is a translation probably made by some app and it doesn't make sense at all, and that's why it is so interesting. We were here only for some hours. The journey is almost ending - unfortunately. But I'm already working on pictures from another trip I've made after this one. Thank you so much for your kind words my friend.

Looks very precarious Antonio, but worth it for the beautiful capture.

I do not recall if it was or not precarious, Perhaps I was just a bit reckless smile
