Mushroom Picking in the Mountains


My name is Kanybek Omorov and I live in Grigorievka. After a rainy day, I walk up the mountains to pick mushrooms. The Grigorievka Gorge is a mushroom paradise! At almost 2,000 meters altitude, many varieties grow in huge quantities if you know where to find them. All of them are eatable! Locals generate income by picking mushrooms and selling them to exclusive restaurants in the capital.

As soon as we have collected sufficient for our degustation in the evening, we will enjoy a delicious picnic with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains.

In the evening we will enjoy a mushroom degustation for dinner.
