In the edge of the South Kyrgyzstan, by the border with Tajikistan, there is located detached Alay valley.

From Osh to Alay valley we will go through the prominent Pamir tract Osh – Horog – the most high- mountainous track of the world. In 170 kilometers from Osh, the Pamir tract crosses the crest of Alay and goes to the southern descend.  Shortly the cliffs, that are closely from each side move aside to the great view of Alay valley.

The Alay valley – is one of the biggest intermountain basins in Kyrgyzstan is very picturesque. There are many alpine pastures. The amazing view appears to be the wall of the over-Alay crest, which is high over the valley for 3000-3500 meters. In the foothills of over-Alay crest, on grass-overgrown ancient moraines there are countless blue lakes.

There is a data that this valley was known by Marko Polo – the Venetian merchant-traveler in eighteens century. He has characterized this area as one of the corpulent pastures , where “the thinnest cattle will grow fat… in ten days”. The first traveler that has investigated Alay region was Russian traveler A.P. Fedchenko, who had visited area in 1871. He possesses honor of the pioneer of the Trans Alai Range and its highest top which is called Lenin Peak (7134m) now.

The fauna of the Alay valley is peculiar. In its fauna prevails the types of animals which are found in Central Asia on Tibet and Tien Shan . There are stone partridges, ular, foxes, wolves, a unique Alay red groundhog are found. In a flood plain Kyzyl-Suu in the past there were pheasants. There is a trout in Amudarya  river  which cannot be met in any other parts of Kyrgyzstan. Snow leopards, bears, wolves, arkhar (mountain rams) live in highlands and flow (mountain goats).

            From Alay valley we will head to the north – to the Fergana valley, one of the most prominent valleys in Central Asia. The tour route lies through Alay crest, along the river Dorout and Isfaram-Sai. Exactly in this route in 18th century several Kyrgyz tribes were wandering, and then they stayed in Alay forever, exactly in this route the troop of Kokan khan were passing by, , in memory about which in Dorout-Korgon there was one of the kokand  fortresses. On this way in X IX century also the first Russian researchers Fedchenko, Korzhenevsky, Grombchevsky had passed by.
