For me travel is a lot about the great outdoors. Visited Ala-Archa on my last day in this fantastic country as a farewell of sorts.
Caught a taxi (negotiated a return trip with 4 hr wait).Took a hike up to the waterfall and had a...More
This place is not so far from Bishkek. Only 40 minutes away by driving.
You can spend a day or two (or more). The nature in this area is amazing. After all it laocated within the Tian Shan. Do nnot miss this one!
We loved this day out and actually went twice over a month. You need some form of transport to get to the start of the walk. There are probably local buses if you can work it out.
Otherwise go by taxi and take a bus...More
The best trekkings if you don't have much time and you are mainly in Bishkek. From center you just follow the way to the mountains. If you want to go with a car into the parl to the hotel, you have to pay entrance. But...More
We booked on facebook with Pegas Adventure day trip to Ala Archa. It was very good trip. Park is so beautiful view. We started from our hotel and in the evening finished our hotel. The prices also was cheaper then others. Highly recommend
Simply the best in central Asia that this national park is amazing. If time permits more than a day is recommended. It's a peaceful hike with adoring awesome nature. Unbelievably close to pathways and picture perfect.
A must if you are in Bishkek. Very few...More

I went with a group that my local guide arranged so don't have any advice, but have heard the cab or local tours work well. I did read somewhere that when you negotiate the fare, be sure it includes being dropped up at the chalet at the actual trailhead area, because otherwise you might get dropped off at the far distant park boundary at the entrance, and then either spend too much time hiking on the road to get into the park up the canyon, or pay through the nose to ride that additional distance. So, just be sure it is clear so there is no misunderstanding.
FYI - I was never able to find a good map for the possible routes, so see if you can get that if you do take a cab and don't have a guide.

People go there with their food prepared for a weekend picnics with friends and family usually, so I wouldn't count on going to a restaurant or a cafe near by. Or there are small fireplaces you can cook, the food cooked in the nature tastes even better, just have to be careful of course.
