Weekend trips from Bishkek?

Post by asherr130 »

Hi friends!

I'll be studying Russian for a month in Bishkek, from July 9th until the beginning of August. Since I'll be in class Monday-Friday, I was wondering what options there are for solid weekend trips from the capital? Can leave Friday afternoon, need to be back Sunday night. Love hiking, horse-trekking and beautiful nature. Planning to either bring my own camping gear, or rent while I'm out there. Also, will be spending some time at the beach and covering Karkol area in August, when friends from the US join, so looking for options other than that. Thanks so much in advance, and please don't hesitate to shoot me a message if you'd like to join for a weekend adventure!

Bests,
Alex

Hi Alex,

have a look at what TUK.kg is organising in the weekend. Just join whatever hike they are going on if they still have space. That will solve your issues of companions and transport.

Otherwise, Ala-Archa, Alamedin, Issyk-Ata are closest valleys good for hiking.

Awesome. Thank you! Do you know if it's possible to rent dirt-bikes anywhere in Bishkek or Karakol?

I don't know, but I am interested to find out. If you find someone (reliable) do let us know!

Bit of an update - had an absolutely amazing time on a Suzuki DR650SE that I rented through Marat on the Caravanistan site. Marat and his crew are incredibly nice, and delivered the bike to my door in Bishkek. Highly recommend!

Hi Asherr,

I misunderstood you needed a motorbike, not a mountainbike. Silly me.

Here is the link to contact Marat: http://caravanistan.com/car-rental/marat/
