Chong Tash (Juku valley) KG

Chong-Tash camping site, which means “big stone” in translation, is mentioned in the writings of Semyonov Tien-Shansky (Russian geographer, botanist, statistician, economist, traveler, statesman and public figure. He received a postscript to his surname “Tyan-Shansky”,  because he described the Tien-Shan mountains). But Buddhist inscriptions show that this place was known long before that.

A beautiful view of the snow-capped peaks, which open immediately as soon as you open the tent.
This is a very quiet and peaceful place.

Here, civilization is gradually left behind, which allows you to finally feel the real nature and hear the murmur of water.

We are getting closer and closer to the huge Arabel Plateau. This is a great place to be alone with nature and feel like a part of it.
