  • Besh-Tash reserve. It is one of the youngest attractions of the area, established in 1996. Today it is a park expanse, where the rarest representatives of flora and fauna are located. The national park is designed to preserve the pristine nature of Kyrgyzstan and to introduce its beauty to all comers. In the reserve you can find pine and spruce, juniper, fir, and rare Tien Shan fir: some representatives of the plant world are included in the Red Book. The lake of the same name with the depth of up to 28 meters also attracts tourists. Thanks to the transparent and clear water and unique shades Besh-Tash reminds one of a turquoise sky. There is also a river with exactly the same name, where there are trout, which cannot fail to please fishermen;
  • Manas-Ordo. This is a cultural and historical complex based on the story of Manas, the main epic hero of Kyrgyzstan. The epic has a historical basis, so most of the descriptions in it are not fiction. The main attraction of the complex is the tomb of the hero. But in fact, this is just a tribute to memory: Manas is buried in a completely different place. Nearby there is an alley for leisurely strolls and a thematic museum;
  • Kirov Reservoir. The most interesting thing here is the dam, which depicts Lenin. It is a monument from the Soviet period and one of the largest monuments of this format. Construction of the reservoir began in the 60’s and lasted 10 years. Its main function is to irrigate the Talas Valley with water accumulated during the spring and winter. If you are lucky, tourists can see the discharge of water from the large dam. With a noise, the water gushing out of the sluices forms a large column of water dust.
