Tour to the Kairak waterfall

Kairak waterfall

Another pearl of the Turgen gorge is the Kairak mountain waterfall.
Suitable for lovers of mountain walks and hiking, as the distance to it is 8 km. During the hike, you can enjoy magnificent views of moss spruce forests and nature, as well as the purest air.

The height of the waterfall is 44 m, this stormy sweat of water irrigates the approach to it with water spray.
The rocky walls of the gorge justify the name of the waterfall because "Kairak" in the Kazakh language means "Whetstone". The stubborn river seemed to carve a path for itself among the rocks.
