Ala Archa Ratcek Hut Overnight Hike

Ala Archa Ratcek Hut Hike

Join Apple Hostel on one of our most popular hikes close to Bishkek. Ratcek Hut was named after a soviet alpinist- Ratcek Vladimir – who initiated the construction of the hut when he was managing  the Kyrgyz Club of Alpinism and Tourism in the 1930s.

You’ll hike up a path that is surrounded by spectacular wildlife and heaps of wildlife on your way up to the famous Ratcek hut. One at the summit, settle down next to a warm fire with a few drinks in the wooden hut which is situated next to Aksai glacier in Ala-Archa National Park.

The trek will start with a transfer from Bishkek to Alplager, before embarking on the 5-6 hour hike up Ratcek Hut. Bring plenty of snacks and water/drinks with you! After a night under the crystal clear stars, begin your amble descent back down to Alplager in the morning before heading back to Bishkek via a private transfer.
