Visit Alay is a tourism development project in Alay and Chong Alay regions. The goal is to help the region to become tourist destination. Now these two regions Alay and Chong Alay are being promoted under the brand Visit Alay. It cooperates with all the tourist organizations and infrastructure of Alay valley. In summer of 2015, it opened two Tourist Information Offices in Osh city and Sarymogol village to attract foreign tourists and promote the tours of the region. The current website is being developed to demonstrate all possible information ranging from tours to sightseeing of Alay valley. Therefore, all the information, photos and tour contained in this website belong to Alay and Chong Alay region
Visit Alay is financed by the BAI ALAI Program. BAI ALAI Program is aimed to reduce poverty in Alai and Chon Alai regions through increased income and (self-) employment - in particular for women and youth. This will be achieved by facilitating the rise of local and regional markets, leading to reduced inequalities and improved perception of life perspectives, especially for local youth.
In 2013, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) launched a new private sector development program in Osh oblast, southern Kyrgyzstan. The BAI ALAI Programme supports specifically the remote and mountainous areas of Alai and Chon Alai during its ten years implementation.
The program BAI ALAI is financed by the Government of Switzerland through SDC and is being implemented by the consortium of HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation and Aga Khan Foundation.
