It was said that in ancient times, there was an old man that lived in the mountains who had two twin boys. Their names were Asan and Usen. He wanted his boys to become warriors and raised them successfully to that end. However, war broke out and both sons were slain in battle. The old man was overcome with grief! He raised his arms up to the sky and prayed: Oh, Allah! You give life and take it away. Return my sons to me and take my life instead. Let it be so! Allah heard his prayer. The ground opened up and high peaks rose up from that very spot. Many centuries have passed, but people still call the two bastions standing next to each other at the start of the Karavshin River the names of the two sons, Asan (4,230 m) and Usen (4,378 m). Farther in the distance you may see the snowy white peak, Piramidalnyi (Tubek) (5,509 m) silhouetted against the blue sky that is said to be the old man. Overnight in tents at Kara Suu Camp.
