Visualizing adrenaline…

I know how important it is to visualize our plans in order to make our intentions crystal clear as well. This is how we move towards them faster and more effectively. The same goes with our tour plans as well. It is not enough to just read about a certain place or activity; it is better to actually watch how people are doing there and only then will you have a clear idea of what to expect from your future activity.

Relying on this philosophy, I decided to share the video of paragliding in Kyrgyzstan, about which I also talked about last time. I would like you guys please go ahead and take a look, discover some advantages and maybe disadvantages of such tour for yourself through this video.:)

Adrenaline #2

Paragliding is another coolest activity that you can do in Suusamyr valley. It is the perfect source of adrenaline rush through you blood, which is a thousand times better than a can of “Red Bull” or “Monster”! :)

The greenness, which will cover the valleys very soon in this season and the sunshine that is the main condition for paragliding just keeps calling all of the extreme lovers to go for it one more time! Anyways, it is in the nature of a person to constantly wish something impossible and one day actually turns it into something real!

There are more than enough amount of tour agencies, which can help you with planning and organizing such activities with your family or friends. All you need to do is take the first step and talk to them, let them know when you are available and what your level is in paragliding. The rest will be taken care of the professionals!

Suusamyr activities

Heart of the Celestials is huge, beautiful and high. Okay, what is there for me to do? How and when to actually get there and with whom?

If you having these questions in your mind, then keep on reading! Suusamyr is supposedly one of the best ski bases for the lovers of winter sports. The fact that the peaks are ocated pretty high above the sea level and therefore the snow condition is perfect lmost all the time makes it one of the best detinations.

You can do anything: go for skiing, snowboarding, freeriding and even heli-skiing! The last is one of those choices that are made by the most of visitors, because it saves a lot of time and energy. Besides that, while heli-skiing you will get the double amount of excitement and adrenaline rush from the experience!

Heart of Tian Shan

As one of the greatest mountains of the world, Tien Shan is already known to you. Why not to explore it more today, for it is so huge in size and each of its parts are also special in some ways.

For instance, let me introduce you to one of the most interesting valleys of Tian Shan – Suusamyr. They say that it is located at the center of the whole mountain range and that is the reason why they call it the Heart of Tian Shan.

Suusamyr’s slopes are one of the highest and untouched ones in the region. The lovers of winter sports and tourists, however, still try to visit the place and enjoy skiing, more exactly heli-skiing on the perfect routes of snow!

People of Cave

As I mentioned before, there are so many amazing stories that are connected to the caves. Today I would like to share one of the most amazing and breathtaking ones that have ever been told in history and that is the story of “People of the Cave”.

Everyone, who is familiar with the Holy Qur’an, the message of Islam, perfectly knows what I am talking about. This story is about young men, who left their houses, home town in order to escape the evil of their nation. The thing is, they observed people worshipping idols and they realized how wrong it actually was. Because there was no one else, who could support them with the same opinion, they decided to leave the town, asking Lord to show the right way.

On the way they stopped at the cave an decided to have some rest. With the magic of Lord, they fell asleep for 300 hundred years! However, when they woke up, they had no idea about that; they thought to have been sleeping for just about hour!

I would like you please go ahead and read the rest of the story from the site, since it is more detailed and accurate there.

Story on Mountains

It is sad that not all expeditions and trips to the mountains go as happy as expected. Mountains are such places, where danger goes so close to the person. It means that the one should be extremely careful while taking an adventure to this not very safe place.

Here is what happened to one of the young people, who loved extreme and did not care enough about his safety: he decided to take a ride to the mountains and canyons on the Bike! As I think, it is not easy to even walk normally at those places, not even talking about riding a bike there! So, there happened an scary accident in the middle of nowhere… Following is the trailer of a movie, which was based on that true story:


Caves in Kyrgyzstan

While a person goes for climbing, he must be ready for so many pleasant and not really expected situations, surprises and other conditions of a nature. Sometimes the weather makes it hard to go on towards the goal or some wild animals may not welcome the new visitor on their mountain.

However, the amount of pleasant surprises are also not so little. As I said in the last post, mesmerizing beauty of crystal clear lakes, rare and precious trees or plants and what I missed last time – the caves!

Mountains are definitely interesting and rich with adventures especially because of caves! They may hide so many treasures and history inside that keep the people attracted.

Here in the site you can see the list of greatest caves in the territory of Kyrgyzstan. Save them for future, just in case you may want to go for some exploring!

Gems on Mountains

While talking about greatest mountains of the world, there are some things that we cannot ignore in them.Those are the gems, pearls of mountains –  the alpine lakes! Why are they called as treasures? Pretty simple, because not every mountain is  “lucky” enough to have them!

Mountaians of Kyrgyzstan is also lucky enough to be the place, which has not one but many alpine lakes hidden in its glorious nature. The largest among them and the second by the size in the world lake is “Issyk Kul”.

Its literal meaning is “Warm Lake”, which is because the lake never gets frozen, despite the cold weather of the area. This is explained as the level of saltiness of issyk Kul is really very high.

The wonders of this lake are pretty huge in amount. There are many rivers that flow into this lake, however, none flow out of it. This fact was the reason why they also call Issyk Kul as an alpine sea…

Be Nomad’s Guest

I am guessing that the menu of Kyrgyz nomad’s food must have already tickled your appettite. But still it is a bit difficult to imagine what the food really looks like and how it may taste till you see how they cook it.

So, how about taking a look to the process of making those yummy dishes by the professional chef cook of Kyrgyzstan? In this video you will not only enjoy the process of cooking, but also the way how Kyrgyz nomads used to meet guests at their homes. Most of those traditions are still followed nowadays, so whenver you get a chance to visit Kyrgyz family, it will not be all new for you.

Nomad’s Cuisine

Nomads had to face really harsh natural conditions, yet were able to survive through all of them. It may be because of their perfect health and body structure. However, one of the main factors for their health is of course food that they ate.

Unlike the western cuisine, full of diets and veggies, Kyrgyz food is very strong. The main part of Kyrgyz cuisine is meat, a lot of it! It may sound very weird but they also use horse meat, which is also said to be really strong and nutritious. They use not only horse’s meat, but also its milk. There is a nice drink, called “Kymyz” made of that milk. They are fond of bread, noodles, variety of food made of flour.

The above said food and drinks help the person to stand freezing weather conditions. For the ones who never used to eat that much meat, it may be really heavy and may cause some uneasiness, but for nomads it is exactly what they need.
