Trekking Landscape worth it in May?

Postby Mlohuis » Sun Apr 22, 2018 6:36 pm

Hi All!

When I am reading all the posts, I see that it can still be very snowy in may in kyrgystan.

Therefore my questions; is it worth it to go to kyrgystan half may? Do you have beautiful scenery or is everything covered by snow? what places are recommended and what not?
And i Would love to do a multipleday trek; what is possible end of may?

Or is it just better to go back in june/july?

Same for Pamir Highway; is the scenery very different in may and in june/july?

Thank you!

Really depends on the weather. Could already be snow-free, the winter was soft this year. Just stay on lower altitudes, for instance go to Altyn Arasan or Ala Archa or Alamedin or Chong Kemin, just not in the higher reaches above 2500m.
