The length of the valley is 155 km. From the north it is covered by the Kyrgyz Ala-Too, from the south and southwest by the Suusamyr-Too range, from the south and southeast by the Jumgal-Too range. The vast spaces of Suusamyr extend from the west from the Ala-Bel Pass to the beginning of the Kekemeren River in the east.
The climate of the Susamyr valley is noticeably different from the lowland plains. In winter, cold air accumulates at the bottom of the valley, flowing from the slopes of the surrounding ridges. For 130-160 days, there is snow up to 70 cm in height, but in summer the air is very fresh and transparent. The entire surface of the valley is gently hilly and densely covered with thick, juicy-green grasses of mountain meadows. On all sides, the necklace is surrounded by a necklace of snow-sharp-toothed peaks shining in the sun. “Shepherd’s Eldorado” – the Russian botanist V. Lipsky called Suusamyr valley so. Another well-known botanist R. Abolin called Suusamyr an “emerald in a silver frame”.
Two rivers flow through the Suusamyr Valley: Western Karakol and Suusamyr, which, merging, form the Kekemeren River, which carries its waters into the main river of the Naryn country. The valley floor covers a carpet of alpine grasses and flowers. Suusamyr is a classic example of alpine jailoo. Dozens of Kyrgyz nomad yurts adorn the immense valleys of the valley. The administrative center of the Suusamyr Valley is the village of Suusamyr located in the eastern part of the valley. Suusamyr is the birthplace of the famous Batyr Kozhomkul. Kozhomkul became famous for its heroic power and the fact that he won the duel of the famous Russian hero Ivan Poddubny. On the eastern outskirts of the village, Kozhomkul’s mother was buried, on the grave of which he hoisted a huge stone weighing 160 kg. This stone he brought on his shoulders from the floodplain of the river, the distance to which is several kilometers. The monument to the medieval period (10-11 centuries) is the ruins of the ancient settlement Suusamyr, which is located north of the village Tunuk. In the lower part of the valley there are stone sculptures of ancient Turks (6-12 centuries), barrow burials of ancient shepherd tribes of the Sako-Usun time (6th century BC – 5th century).
The natural treasure of the Inner Tien-Shan, the valley between the Kyrgyz and Talas Ala-Too ranges, is called Suusamyr.
The valley is located at an altitude of 2000-3200 m and has a length of 155 km. In winter, there are deep snow drifts, and in summer almost the entire territory of the valley, like an alpine meadow, is covered with a carpet of high green grass.
Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Susamyr valley is famous for its pastures, one of the best in the whole country.
The valley attracts many tourists who want to spend time in the fresh mountain air, climbers and lovers of alpine skiing.
