How to visit and travel to Ferghana Valley (Kyrgyzstan)

Osh Airport has international flights and a domestic connection with Bishkek.

How to get around in Ferghana Valley (Kyrgyzstan)

To get to Chon-Alai take a marshrutka or shared taxi from Osh. You can contact Abdulla, a local, which is apparently starting a tour agency (his WhatsApp is +996 777021172). But hitch-hiking might be the more economical and faster option.

By bike

The road between Bishkek and Osh goes over two passes of about 3,600 m above sea level. At the Тео-Ашуу pass near Bishkek, there is a 2 km long tunnel. It may be a good idea to try to hitch a lift in a car through the tunnel. But there is also a trail over the mountain ridge. Which however is almost impossible with heavy bicycles, because the trail on the northern side of the mountain is blocked by some landslides—manageable on foot though.
