The immersive experience of natural beauty and positive impressions
The journey to Kegety Gorge starts at 09:00. During the leisurely tour to the sparkling waterfall in the picturesque gorge, resembling a postcard, you will capture numerous amazing photos against the backdrop of rainbow splashes. The 20-meter waterfall cascading from rocky mountains is easily accessible, just a hundred meters away from the road. In the majestic mountains of the coniferous national park, you will enjoy the crystal-clear air, while the sound of the waterfall and the rushing river will please your ears. The breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks will unfold before your eyes.
The next stop is the famous Burana Tower, where you will embark on an informative guided tour. Once a significant stop on the Great Silk Road, this place was home to the city of Balasagun. While the city vanished, the tower remained, offering panoramic views from its observation deck of the valley through which caravans of merchants carrying porcelain and silk used to pass. If desired, you can climb to the top of the tower, reaching a height of 25 meters above the ground. You will also see sculptures of balbals with beautifully preserved expressive faces. What could these intricately carved stones possibly mean? This location is not only intriguing for its architectural structure and historical significance but also for its mystical legends, which will be shared by the guide and the museum on-site.
The return journey takes you through the Issyk-Ata hot springs, where you can relax at the end of the day. The hot springs' waters are rich in minerals and salts beneficial for health. So, after an eventful journey, your fatigue will be easily and quickly relieved in the thermal water pool of the sanatorium built during the Soviet era.
