  • It is an excellent experience hiking to Ala Kul. We go without guide and take the camp and supple for 3 days 2 night. You need to check the route and the condition of yourself and the weather carefully. The hiking trail started from karakol to Arashan where you need to pass through 3900m pass and get ready to descend at the slope cover with snow. When you see the breath taking view, it worth everything.
  • Ala kul lake is a lake situated in Karakol. We did 3 days trekking with "Travel Forever " Our trip was not so easy. When we got to the lake you forgot everything. The lake is very clear and blue. Altitude 3500. After Ala Kul went up to 3900m. Down to Altyn Arashan. After long trekking day take a natural hot shower. Next day back to Karakol. For this tour you have to take good trekking shoes, warm clothes, water, power bank. No electricity on the way. With this company also hired Porter. Porter is who us carry your bag during the trip. And their give us more cheaper prices. Highly recommend "Travel Forever" company (Easy to contact on Facebook)
