Kashka Suu

Kashka-Suu gorge is a branch of the Ala Archa valley located east from the “gate of Ala-Archa”. This valley is located 35 km south from Bishkek at the altitude of 2100 m above the sea level. The gorge is occupied by many ski resorts and equipped with several recreation facilities. The entire area is used for grazing of domestic animals, growing various herbs and barley and wheat. Here you can see the small but turbulent river Kashka-Suu. In the early 2000s, a powerful mudslide destroyed one of the summer settlements placed near Ala-Archa. From the top points of the ski resort there are panoramic views up to the mountains as well as to the Baitik and Chui valleys.
