Photographer Albert Dros spent 3 weeks in Kyrgyzstan browsing gorgeous nature and taking some amazing photos on the way. He says that he’s almost used to beautiful landscapes since he’s traveled a lot for work, but this Asian country left him speechless.
Kyrgyzstan’s nature is untouched, skies are clear and air contains zero pollution. The downsides are bad roads and general inaccessibility, but for those who give it a shot, this is an amazing destination for adventures, according to Dros.
You can see some of the photos he took below. Don’t miss following him on Instagram for more content!
I am currently in the capital of Kyrgyzstan Bishkek. I did not want to miss the moon eclipse so we just went out randomly outside of the city to see it. No crazy foregrounds here for 400mm so I decided to shoot a wide angle shot to show how cool it is that the moon eclipse was so close to Mars. The red 'star' in this picture is the moon, and the bright orange one is Mars. And, because of the darkness of the eclipse the Milky Way was easily visible. What a beautiful night! ⭐ Photo is a single exposure. 🌒 #lunareclipse #nightphotography #nightphotography_exclusive #kyrgyzstan #nasa
I spent the last 2 days at Son-Kul. This is a lake area at 3000m above sea level which is crazy to believe as there are mountains all around. There is something about the place that is just so peaceful. We slept in a Yurt and it was cold! . Tomorrow im heading to the east of the country. . #kyrgyzstan #songkol #sonkul #nature_perfection #earthfocus #sunset_vision #bishkek #sonyimages
I am back from 3 days of hiking in the Kyrgyz mountains. The height of these mountains is something we're not used to in Europe. 3000m of altitude is very common here. This is a shot of Karakol Valley with Karakol Peak in the background. Karakol peak's top has a height of 5200m We stayed the night at the base of this huge mountain at an altitude of 3000m. . Thanks to @visitkarakol for making this possible. . #visitkarakol #karakol #karakolvalley #karakolpeak #kyrgyzstan #naturekyrgyzstan #mountainpeaks #earthfocus #passionpassport #discoverglobe
Ala-Kul Lake, Kyrgyzstan. 🇰🇬 It took me lots of effort to get to this lake as I descended down from Karakol Peak on the same day just to go up to Ala-Kul at 3600m after lunch. Close to the top at around 3300m it got very steep and the altitude sickness got to me but after a slow grind I eventually got there. The sight of this lake at the top was definitely rewarding 🙂 it was a beautiful clear night to spend with my girlfriend there (who by the way had zero troubles with the altitude 😂) ⛰️ #visitkyrgyzstan #kyrgyzstan #naturekyrgyzstan #earthfocus #sonyalpha #nature_perfection #beautifuldestinations #ourplanetdaily @visitkarakol
Ala-Archa is a National Park close to Bishkek where you can do some moderate hiking. I say moderate but the mountain scapes are already impressive here with its rugged peaks. 🇰🇬 The flowers in this shot are used as herbs for tea. They taste great! ⛰️ #naturekyrgyzstan #pixkg #kyrgyzstan #bishkek #nature_perfection #sonyalpha #sonyimages #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport
I love looking the 400mm as binoculars. The only difference is, you can freeze a moment into eternity: Light reflecting against the clouds hitting the different layers of the Kyrgyz mountains in Ala-Archa with an eagle is circling the rugged tops looking for food. 🇰🇬 #visitkarakol #visitkyrgyzstan #kyrgyzstan #naturekyrgyzstan #sonyalpha #nature_perfection #awesomeglobe #earthlandscape #pixkg #sonyalpha
