The nature of Kyrgyzstan is impressive with the high mountain landscapes that differ in different corners of the country. It allows visitors to enjoy a variety of mountain activities such as hiking as well as rock climbing. The second one is getting more popular in recent years. Kyrgystan offers an excellent spot for rock climbing all around the country and one of the most stunning places is Karavshin gorge. 

Karavshin gorge is located in the Turkestan mountain range, in the heart of the Pamir-Alai mountain system, right to peak Ak-Suu. Turkestan mountain range region is particularly attractive and unique. It resembles South American Patagonia with the same wilderness, winds blowing through, mountain streams with pure water, alpine meadows, herds of yaks grazing peacefully, glaciers surrounded by 5000 meters Peaks as well as remote locations. Although there is one notable advantage of the Kyrgyzstan Patagonia mountains from the South American analog is the sturdy and warm weather.

The Karavshin valley along with the neighboring Leilek gorges, on the Turkestan ridge annually attracts professional climbers from all over the world. The gorges are quite difficult to access, there is no road car road,  therefore it is required to hike a long 70-kilometer pedestrian crossing to get to this remarkable site.
