April to October
The Turgen Gorge waterfalls are a breathtaking show. Imagine the huge mass of water, a powerful stream falling from a height of several tens of meters. The most beautiful and highest one is the Kayrak waterfall. It is located on the Bozgul River, the right inflow of the Turgen river. The way to the Kayrak waterfall begins behind the Batan settlement. The distance to the falls is 8 kilometers. The road goes through the beautiful Turgen Gorge, through the alpine meadows and mountain springs. The Kayrak River punched a 55-meter pass in the mountainous rock. The waterfalls completely justify its name, “Kayrak” in translation from Kazakh means “grindstone”. After visiting the waterfalls we will make a stop on the Don- Jailow plateau.
