Shamshy Wildlife Sanctuary

Tokmok (Day trip from Bishkek, August 22).

Shamshy Wildlife Sanctuary is a former hunting concession that is now co-managed as a wildlife reserve by the Kygyz government and a coalition of conservation NGOs incl. Snow Leopard Foundation Kyrgyzstan and the Snow Leopard Trust. Shamshy’s wildlife includes snow leopards, ibex, lynx, marmots and many other alpine species.

Snow Leopard Rehabilitation Center

Ananyevo / Issyk-Kul (Overnight trip from Bishkek, August 22-23).

Managed by German conservation organization NABU, the Snow Leopard Rehabilitation Center near the shores of lake Issyk-Kul provides a safe haven for cats and other animals that have been seized or recovered from poachers. Some of them, like the snow leopards, can’t be released back into the wild. The center was opened in 2002, after NABU’s anti-poaching unit, Gruppa Bars, first confiscated an injured snow leopard that needed care. 

Ala Archa National Park

Chuy (Day trip from Bishkek, August 23).

The Ala Archa National Park is an alpine national park in the Tian Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan, established in 1976 and located approximately 40 km south of the capital city of Bishkek. The park’s fauna includes the elusive snow leopard, wild goats, roe deer and marmots.
