The Southernmost Valley of Kirghizia

Posted on April 13, 2015 by team

Alay valley is not the end of the world, it’s just the southernmost place of Kirghizia. Further on lies the desert   It stretches for hundreds or maybe even thousands of kilometers up to the Arabian Sea.

Compared to that desert Kirghizia is a blooming garden. Quite surprising that Kyrgyz people live on both sides of the deserted land. Blogger Vladimir Trofimov has visited the valley and shared these pictures.

Alay valley is a natural masterpiece of Kirghizia, the favorite place for many climbers who come to conquer the peak of Lenin. From the height the valley looks like a big sausage which is thirty kilometers wide.

There is only one road that crosses the Alay range – Kyzyl Art. “Kyzyl” means “red”. “Art” means “a mountain pass”.

The road and the peaks around are really red as well as the river Kyzyk-Su flowing by.

The peak of Lenin is 7134 meters high. In clear weather it is reflected in the lakes like in the mirrors.
