Today I had the pleasure to have Boca as my personal guide on a hike in Al-Archa. Boca was very considerate and courteous to help me on the icy and slippery path. He gave me the feeling that I have to come back in summer and hike further up.

Had a fantastic time hiking out in the winter mountains with Boca, who is one of the best tour guides I have ever had in my 79 countries visited so far. His personable nature made it really pleasant to spend hours hiking with him and he told me about the history of Kyrgyszstan, explained about the geography, as well as telling me about Kyrgyz culture and identifying suitable photo opportunities and best routes for the hike. We had a really nice lunch at the end of the tour as well which was something I wouldn’t have found by myself. Excellent day

My partner and I went on this spectacular hike for my birthday, and our guide, Bek, was absolutely incredible. He helped make the day a very special one with his enthusiasm, warmth, and humour as well as astounding local historical knowledge!

This was an amazing hike in an amazing place, and my guide, Boca, was great. We were lucky to go on the morning after the first overnight snowfall of the year, so it ws even more beautiful than many of the pictures I've seen, yet still hikable. Take note it's a real hike - several miles and thousands of feet of elevation climb - if I hadn't stopped at the bazaar for hiking boots and accepted the trekking pole from Boca I would have been sunk!

I hiked with Bekzhan on October 25, the day after I arrived here in Bishkek. I had a wonderful and unforgettable hike with him. He is so considerate, approachable and very honest with my hiking condition. It is my 2nd time doing solo travel and I’m happy to say I consider him as my friend! :) We reached near the waterfall where there was snow. My core memory is that we did some sliding from the snow near the waterfall and did some snowball fight, and able to test my limits on hiking! 😅 Then we headed back to Bishkek for lunch and it was delicious. When I have the opportunity to be travel back in Kyrgyzstan, I’ll definitely see the lakes, for sure!! Thank you so much, I had a greaaaat time!

I was here for peak autumn, and the weather is usually foggy and wet. It was ok for me as I like that mysterious vibe!! Boca was very kind to answer any questions I had. He knows best if the trails are risky to pass through. We hiked up halfway and decided to turn around and took another trail as the fog was getting thicker and the ground was slippery. The views and the river were amazing! We also stopped to have a traditional lunch! Delicious! Thank you so much for showing me around!

We were supposed to do the tour on 22 Sep, however, the weather was really bad in the morning and the operator (Ash) allowed us to cancel and provided us full refund. Ash is very responsive to messages and flexible in catering to our requests. Subsequently when the weather turned better in the afternoon, we contacted Ash and he immediately arranged for us to continue the tour. Our guide, Akbar is very kind and caring, speaks good English and shared with us a lot about Kyrgyzstan. Both our guide and driver are friendly and we enjoyed our tour tremendously.
