Very beautiful place. We slept in Elza Guest House- was very friendly and not expensive. I love Kirgistan for that mountains!
We were able to get there by car (UAZ Patriot 2019) in late September, but even with such a car it was very rough, 2 hour drive. I wouldn't recommend to do it if someone is not experienced with driving on such a road and I can't express enough how rough it is. All the time we weren't sure if we can do it. I would say the valley itself may not be worth the effort, but it’s a start point for great trails and beautiful wilderness.
