How am I, a resident of Poland, got the strange idea to go to Kyrgyzstan?! I travelled a lot, but my past destinations run through the countries of the Eastern Europe and Asia. Moreover I like mountains and mountain trekking as soon as exciting wild nature and photography. I don’t go to the mountains without my camera. So I had many trekking tours along not so high but terrific Polish hills, I was in Caucasus and even went to Himalayas. Tien Shan and Pamir looked like something strange and mystic. However I’ve got ability to go to Kyrgyzstan and make my dream come true just in the past year.
My girlfriend Aneta also liked the idea to go to this wonderful country. My friends Daria and Grisha also would like to go with us (we travelled together already). So we scheduled our trip and ordered tickets.
The view of the Karakol George is very exciting. Remember that my first thought was “That’s what I need!”. We didn’t meet other tourists as it was September. Only wild animals and wonderful mountains were around us.
The region where we supposed to be has severe climatic conditions that are similar to the Northern slopes of the Himalayas. Here you won’t see any plants excluding dry grass because the height is about 3000m about sea level:
This picture reminds me a frame from the "Planet of the Apes" movie by Franklin J. Schaffner.
The most exciting place that we met is the range of snowy mountains the height of which is more than 7000m above sea level as soon as the highest Lenin Peak (7134m)
The Lenin Peak. The peak surrounded by clouds looks very majestically.
However, the best part of Kyrgyzstan is ability to meet kind and good Kyrgyz people.
The skilled hunter and shepherd in the Karakol valley. He lives and works in this wonderful place for a long time.
