Soek pass (Arabel-Suu) KG

The Soek Pass, located in the Jeti Oguz district of Kyrgyzstan, is a high road pass that holds a significant place in the history of the ancient Silk Road. The name "Soek" in Kyrgyz language means "bones," which is thought to be due to the high altitude and barren landscape that surrounds the pass.

The Soek Pass is a crucial link between the high plateau of Arabel-Suu and the plateau of the upper Naryn River, known as Ak-Shirak. The pass is closed during the winter months due to heavy snowfall, making it inaccessible for vehicles and travelers. But it can be bypassed by following the course of the Arabel-Suu River.

The journey across the Soek Pass is not for the faint-hearted, as the pass reaches an altitude of over 4,000 meters and requires a steady ascent through the Terskey Range and its glaciers. The rugged terrain and unpredictable weather conditions make the crossing even more challenging.

Despite the difficulty of the journey, the Soek Pass holds great historical significance as it was a crucial part of the ancient Silk Road trade route that connected the Xinjiang with the ancient cities of the Chuy valley. Traders and merchants would use this route to transport their goods, including silk, spices, and other precious commodities.

Today, the Soek Pass remains an important transportation route for the people living on the South shore of the Issyk Kul lake. It serves as a vital link between the remote mountain communities and the rest of the country. Despite its challenges, the pass attracts adventure seekers, skiers, horsebackriders and trekkers who are eager to experience the rugged beauty, majestic lakes and historical significance of this ancient Silk Road route.

Nevertheless, the first Catholic churches appeared only several centuries later - for example, the construction of this cathedral began in 1912, and prisoners of war were mainly involved in this process, among whom there were many specialists - architects, engineers, sculptors, etc. The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a magnificent example of neo-Gothic architecture. The decoration of its obnoxious and dark facade are stained glass windows and spiers, the interior decoration is lined with granite and marble, and the furniture and doors are made of precious woods. The main hall is adorned with a 2-meter statue of Jesus Christ and a musical organ.
