Turgen-Gorge, Bear-Falls, Assy-Plateau, Bartogai-lake and Charyn-Canyon

Two-Days Trip. Day Two

This route includes several interesting places.

We leave from Almaty early in the morning and drive to the Turgen gorge, where we walk on foot for an hour, an easy hiking route, to the Bear Waterfall. After that, we go to the mountains to the Assy plateau.

There is time for eating dinner and visiting the observatory with a platform from which you get a panoramic view of the entire plateau. On the way, we can see the real life of nomads (yurts, horses, cows) and rock drawings of ancient Saki tribes.

We spend the night in tents in a picturesque place near the red rocks. In the morning of the second day, we go to the beautifully located Bartogai lake. There are ancient burial grounds and burial mounds nearby.

The next point of our trip is Charyn canyon.

In the evening, we return to Almaty.
