In the morning, depart Bishkek with your guide and driver for Konorchek Canyon (130km, 2hrs) via the A365 Highway.
The hike begins in Boom Gorge at the Red Bridge, which arches over the Chu River. Your two-hour hike (one-way) winds through a maze of rocks and red sandstone columns that stretch for miles. The trail provides ample photo opportunities and has many fun twists and turns.
Follow a river through the narrow gorge until you reach a small plateau, from which you’ll have a sweeping view of the red-earth Eolian Castles. Enjoy a picnic lunch and a time of rest, admiring the striking beauty of the cliffs, before beginning the return trek.
Return to Red Bridge and drive back to Bishkek. End of Konorchek Canyon Day Hike.
