Suusamyr valley

Unique historical monuments are located in the lower part of the valley: the medieval settlement of Suusamyr, stone sculptures and ancient burial mounds of the Sako-Usun period of the 6th-5th centuries BC.


Suusamyr is an intermountain basin in the Tien Shan mountains. The valley is located at an altitude of 2,200 meters above the sea level and is surrounded by mountain peaks that reach a height of 4,500 meters. Bishkek is 160 kilometers away from here.

For fans of skiing from the mountain peaks, there is a ski resort in Suusamyr with incredible views of the snowy peaks surrounding the valley.

In summer, the Suusamyr valley is covered with a motley carpet of meadow herbs and flowers. Suusamyr is a classic example of a high-altitude summer pasture, rightfully considered one of the best jailoos in Kyrgyzstan. In late spring and early summer, dozens of yurts appear in the valley. Kyrgyzstanis and foreign tourists come here for kumis treatment (treatment with horse milk).
