Walking distance: ~10 km
The one-day mountain tour to Beldersay Ring is a short but an eventful march, in the course of which the traveler, in a relatively small territory, will have a possibility to see almost all types of hilly landscape: from narrow rocky sites and waterfalls to spacious Alpine meadows. The Beldersay natural boundary is found 75 km from Tashkent, and well-known to Tashkent residents and its numerous guest not only as a ski resort but also as a perfect place to spend summer holiday. In spite of the fact that the total length of the route is almost 8 km, the hike takes almost a whole day, though the major portion of the way has no difficult ascents. And what is important, the impressions of the “Beldersay Ring” mountain tour will remain in your memory for a long time.
9:00-11:00 Transfer to the Beldersay valley to the merge of Beldersay and Mramornaya rivers (75 km, 2 h). This is the start point of our hiking (1550 m above the sea level). Having said goodbye to our driver and left for a back attributes of a civilization we will start to walk up along the left bank of the Mramornaya River. After 1,5 hour of quite pleasant walking we will reach a small birch grove, pictorially located on the bank of the mountain river. Short rest and we start 45 minutes long ascent to Urta-Kumbel Pass (1820 m above sea level). Ascent usually takes 45 minutes and we find ourselves in the saddle of the pass. What a great view! We can see the valley of Beldersay River, Chet-Kumbel Pass and the way, which leads to it. Flat descent will lead us to the small grove, located on the bank of Beldersay, where we will have lunch.
After lunch we will continue our walking and go up to the saddle of the Chet-Kumbel Pass (1850 m). The panoramic view from the pass allows us to see the Valley of Nurekata River and the top of Big Chimgan (3309 m). Having admired by the view we will start to go down to the Beldesay cable car station and the road where our minibus will be waiting for us (1550 m).
16:30 - 18:00 Return to Tashkent.
