Almost the whole territory of Kyrgyzstan is covered with mountains. But there are not so many places for skiing or ski touring here:
1. Eastern Terskey Ala Too, near Karakol city.
2. Kyrgyz Range, near Bishkek city. Glaciers in the Valley of Ala Archa river are available for skiing even in summer time.
3. Suusamyr Valley and Too Ashuu Pass
4. Area of Arabel Suu river 5. Arslanbob
6. Ak Tuz, Chon Kemin

Return my sons to me, and take my life instead. Let it be so!» And Allakh heard his pray, and the ground opened and high peaks rose up on the spot.
