Bishkek, Chui valley

The Chui valley is most north valley of Kyrgyzstan. It is placed to the north from Kyrgyz Range and it accomodates the capital of Kyrgyzstan – Bishkek. Thermals starts here in April and lasts up to the end of September.

You can make really big XC flights along the Kyrgyz Range mountains, flying more then handred kilometers, crossing numbers of valleys and ridges.Main takeoffs here are the TYSACHA (2270m), CChon-Tash(1500) and Jylamish (1270).

There is an upper valley on the south from Bishkek. It is fenced by the hills chain from the Chui valley. It is pretty good thermalling conditions in the upper valley thanks to the unique geography. It has 10 km width and 30 km long.

Taking off from Tysyacha paraglider pilots have more than 1000 meters above the valley and can fly very interesting XC flights. Jylamish take off is another very good place for flying over the flatlands, because the takeoff is situated on the hill placed almost in the valley.

Another very good training hill near Bishkek. The place have different takeoffs. They are out from mountains so it is easy to fly out to the flats from here.

Usually pilots are flying to th East from here – towards the ChonTash takeoff, which is in 25 kilometers from here. Main wind is West – it helps pretty much to fly to East.
