Burana Complex (UNESCO heritage site) - one of the few historical buildings in Kyrgyzstan and a remnant of an old Silk Road town. The tower is a part of the minaret of the town of Balasagun that was the capital of the Karahanid Dynasty during the 11th century. In 1974 the tower was restored and now it is possible to climb up through the inside stairs and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of the surrounding mountains from its top. Around the tower there are Balbals (stone warriors) from between the 6th and 10th centuries. The small museum contains more artifacts collected in this area.

Chon-Kemin Valley and Gorge - known as one of Kyrgyzstan's most beautiful locales, the Chon-Kemin valley is popular with those who enjoy extreme sports. Its eponymous river flows across the Kungei-Ala-Too and Iliysky Ala-Too mountain ranges, stretching over 70 miles, with seven lakes in its basin. Here also lies a specially protected region, Chon-Kemin National Park, a lush natural area brimming with diverse flora and fauna. Forming the sides of the valley are conifer forests, which are home to many varieties of herbs, berries, and mushrooms. The Chon-Kemin valley is a popular spot amongst those who truly appreciate natural beauty, as it remains - many say - in its virgin state.
