Must visit if you travel along the south shore of lake Issik Kul. It's not too far from the main road thanks to good roads snaking its way along the gorge. The most popular attractions are the beautiful waterfalls. We made it only to the very fist waterfall which is about 15 minutes from the main road. I believe there are three levels of the same waterfall and depending on how adventurous and fit you are you can choose which one you'd like to visit. The first level is quite easy and anyone should be able to get there without much difficulty. You can also go there and back on horseback which is highly recommended, quite an experience. There are also several yurtas which serve all kind of local dishes. Make sure to order samovar tea with borsoks and kaimak (home made cream of milk) for starters, absolutely delicious. Take your time and enjoy the serene atmosphere and taste of local culture.

The only thing to really see in the Barskoon Gorge is the large waterfall. It's worth seeing because it's so big and the views are nice. In general the Barskoon Gorge is quite steep and rocky. There is not much else to do there.

The most interesting thing to drive to the end of the gorge to the 2nd boarder zone check and have a look around.

When we arrived in the afternoon there were foggy & cold coz its snowing a day before we came. After a while the place were brightened by the sunshine. Superb view! Beautiful snow mountain but we can't see the waterfall as the track to the waterfall was slippery.
