Route: Bishkek – Alamedin Gorge — Bishkek


This is the second biggest gorge of Kyrgyz ridge known to the locals as “Hot Springs”. In this gorge in Soviet times on the base of hot mineral springs on the height of 1981 m above the sea level the holiday house was built. Nowadays it doesn’t work but the pool with the hot water coming from the springs is still there. The water in the pool is about 30 C where you may swim with pleasure and good.

The hot springs themselves function on the base of mineral water spring coming from the bowels of the mountains with the temperature of about +56 C. Mineral water has a wide range of useful balneological properties. In the structure of the water there are calcium salt, magnesium, iron, fluorine, cilicic acid. The water cures the diseases of musculoskeletal system, radiculitis, osteochondrosis, peripheral nervous system, also used as table water.

With the height increase from 1800 to 2000 m little sparse growth of juniper and bushes are turn into juniper thickets. Alamedin flood plain is absolutely covered by birch and pussy-willow groves and also by different types of bushes: barberry, black current, sea buckthorn and briar. Despite other gorges like Issyk-Ata and Tuyuk-Issyk-Ata there are no fir forests in Alamedin gorge. Though in the Birch groves that you may often see going along the river bank you may look for mushrooms. Fragrant wild strawberries redden on the lawns. Barberries and black current is ripen at the end of August, in September, which are really good for wine and jam making. With the first frosts it’s time to collect rowan.

After about 1,5 hours of walk from the holiday house Alamedin gorge is getting wider turning into Salyk tract. From the left there are crystal clear springs gush from under the stones. A little bit more to the left and up in the narrow gorge you may admire a little 10-12 m waterfall. In the upper part of Salyk gorge there is the second biggest glaciation node of Kyrgyz ridge.
