  • ℹ️ Description

30 June 2016 - Less than an hour south of Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek is the Ala-Archa National Park, a great place for hiking and trekking. From the park entrance, we ended up hiking to the high point in our trek after ~5ish hours, at which point we arrived at the Ratsek hut and saw the Ak Sai glacier. We were at almost 3400m above sea level and ascended about 1400m on foot to get here! We were exhausted but happily relaxed for awhile before setting off for the 3-hour trek back down.

This was only my second day in Kyrgyzstan but it was a great start to spending #SummerWithTheStans :)
