Tour to Tekes waterfall and Tuzkol lake

Tekes waterfall and Tuzkol lake

300 km from Almaty, in the cradle of the Tien Shan ranges, there is a beautiful waterfall - Tekes. A stream of the purest waterfalls into the round base of the rocks, which is why it is called more often.

For those who have already been to all the mountains and gorges near Almaty, the trip will open up new views - plateaus, followed by the highest peaks, silence, and untouched primeval nature. There are only herds of sheep and horses, as well as yurts that fit comfortably into the landscape of the original Kazakh pastures.
Overnight in a tent at an altitude of 2500 m on the bank of a fast mountain river, dinner on the fire, and for lovers of comfort - there is a guest house or yurt.

In the morning we will drive to Tuzkol Lake, from which, in good weather, you can admire the views of Khan Tengri.
