Review

Issyk is a picturesque, high-mountainous lake surrounded by an unusually beautiful nature of dense forests and wide flower fields. The lake is located at an altitude of 1760 meters above sea level, in the Issyk gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau, about 70 km east of Almaty. In the city of Issyk, many archaeological monuments, burial mounds, burial grounds of the Golden Man were found.
The Turgen Gorge in the Ile-Alatau National Park (90 km from Almaty) is an ideal place to enjoy the beauty of nature. The gorge is also famous for its waterfalls.
One of the attractions of the Turgen gorge is the Bear waterfall. It is located just a kilometer from the road and it will not be difficult to reach it. The waterfall is located at an altitude of 1559 meters above sea level.
