Kishi-Koyandy - information for tourists.
Traveling along the gorge, we will see the high mountain peak Bugultur (height 3918 meters) and reach the Kishi-Koyandy pass (height 2975 meters). Traveling to this region will take us at least two days, and it is better to go for three days at once, because it will take us only one day to travel to the Aksu-Zhabagly reserve itself. The reserve is not located close, so the travel time should be calculated as one day, that is, we will need 2 days for a trip back and forth, plus we need time to explore and travel around the reserve itself and the Kishi-Koyandy gorge.
