From the highway, built by the Chinese, Boom gorge does not look impressive. On the part of Balykchi it is generally very wide, with rather sloping folds. Although from here you can see three massive mountain ranges.The most beautiful plot is located about half way from Tokmok to Balykchy where suddenly appear multi-colored rocks - this is the beginning of a long canyon Suluu-Terek, one of the most beautiful places to which from the road you must pass 5-7 km away. Here is the famous Red bridge and a walkway to the beautiful Konorchek canyons. And generally beauty of the gorge is better to look closer to the Chu river, not to the road. Although the landscape is somewhat diversified by railway tracks. They are used, but only in summer. It is rather a sightseeing attraction, because the train goes on the tracks 8 hours, while for the car is enough only three.

It's beautiful, nice road drive. But there are so many other places nearby Bishkek such as AlaArcha, Kegety, ChonKemin that Boom Gorge is just another road drive.

Passing through Boom Gorge last summer we couldn’t help but notice the similarities between it and some of the mountain passes in BC and Alberta Canada that we grew up exploring so it felt a bit like home. There are lots of places along the highway to pull over and take pictures of some stunning scenery so click away and enjoy.

The gorge is approx. an hour an a half from Bishkek on the excellent dual carriageway to Issyk Kul lake. There is a fast flowing river on its floor and plenty of pull-offs to take photos. The road climbs some way out of the city and there are some interesting red sandstone cliffs en route as well as plenty of glacial material. The cafes are large and have good washrooms.

You will pass through Boom Gorge on the way from Bishkek to Issyk Kul. In the middle of the gorge you can go on a very interesting walk up through a dry river canyon - but here a guide is recommended.

I went to Boom Gorge with TIK and it was great! We did a one day trek in and out of the gorge. It connects two regions the Chuy and the Issyk Kul regions. The gorge is about 30 km. You can see the Chu river which is popular place for rafting and hiking.
