Kyrgyz Republic in Contented Traveller's 11 Best Outdoor Adventures in Asia
Contented Traveller's Paula McInerney has published a list of 11 best outdoor adventures in Asia recently. As the author notes, the list is 11 Best Outdoor Adventures in Asia as nominated by travel writers from all over the world. We were glad to know that Kyrgyz Republic has also made it to the list, which also has Indian Himalayas, Mongolia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Japan, Myanmar, and Laos. This time Kyrgyz Republic got attention for its trekking opportunities in Ala-Archa National Park. Here's a piece on Kyrgyz Republic:
Kyrgyzstan is one of the best countries for outdoor adventures generally, but one of my absolute favourites even in this country of so much potential is also one of the most popular: Ala-Archa National Park and the annual Alpinada festival. In a tradition that dates back into the Soviet era, on May 1st each year hundreds of hikers gather in the country’s most well-known national park to make a group summit of ‘Young Communist Peak’. It’s a trekking peak, no real mountaineering required, but the community vibe of a sunrise wake-up and a one-day summit and back make it one of the most enjoyable hikes around.
