Bikepacking Overnighter


Bikepacking Kyrgyzstan is pleased to invite two persons to join our two-days bikepacking trip visiting Balasagun (Burana) and Suyab remains of ancient Silk Road cities

We will start our journey in Bishkek following a bike lane along Prospekt Mira street toward Boz-Bolok hills with the huge flag on the top. Then we cycle the asphalt road to the mountains of Ysyk-Ata area and find a proper spot for our camp somewhere in the area after about 55km of riding. The other option is to ride the next 20 km and set up tents next to The Farm Guesthouse Yurt Camp.

We will reach our first sight of the remains of Balasagun (Burana) medieval town before midday as we ride the asphalt road all the way down there.

Ruins of Suyab will be our next destination which is just about 17 km mix of road and dirt ride from Balasagun.

Our long stretch back to Bishkek is mostly flat ride will let us observe rural areas of Chui Valley while we enter Bishkek from the east at Alamedin area (там где водится кракадиль).
