  • Vacation Style
  • Activity level Просто

Turgen’s gorge waterfalls is a breathtaking view. Imagine a huge mass of water falling in powerful flow from a height of several tens of meters. The most beautiful and high waterfall is Kairak. It is located on the Bozgul River, the right tributary of the Turgen River. The path to the Kairak waterfall begins after Batan village. The path to the waterfall takes 8 kilometers. The road goes along the most beautiful Turgen gorge, through the alpine meadows and mountain springs. Kairak waterfall struck a 55-meter passage in a tall rock. The waterfall fully justifies its name, as the name «kayrak» in Kazakh means «sharpened». After the waterfall a nice picnic awaits for you on the Don Zhailau plateau.
