Naryn is the starting point for so many tourist routes running through the Tien Shan mountains. From here, hunting tours for mountain ibex and Marco Polo arhars, as well as many-day hiking and horseback expeditions going to the tops, are going to. The Naryn River is the main tourist attraction of the city, and it's not even in the fabulous beauty of coastal landscapes. The river is a longed-for dream of those whose body needs constant bursts of adrenaline. Rafting of all categories of complexity is what attracts extremists from all over the country and near abroad. The season of rafting on this recalcitrant river continues from April to November, and the level of complexity varies depending on the season. Experts advise to rafting here on the most "stable" water - in late August and September. For fans of ecotourism in the vicinity of Naryn is a real paradise.
