Ala Archa National Park is located in the north of the country, about 40 kilometers south of Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. The national park is at an altitude of 1500 to 4895 meters above sea level, as high as the peak of Semenov-Tian-Shansky Peak. There are 20 glaciers of different sizes in the park. The coniferous forests of Archa (Juniperus Semiglobosa) cover most of the national park, after which it got its name. Visitors emphasize the beauty of mixed trails, where the trail passes through forests, rocks, and snow. The animal world is diverse here, and in addition to trout in glacial streams, you can see the extremely rare Snow Leopard, chamois, and marmots here.
