TOUR SIGHTS

 

On this tour you will go to the picturesque high-mountain plateau of Assy, the path that runs through the no less picturesque gorge of the Turgen River - the longest and most extensive gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau, you will personally see a real astronomical observatory located at an altitude of 2750 m above sea level, where you literally touch to the clouds.
In summer, the Assy plateau is an alpine meadow with lush green grass, which is why it is used by shepherds as a summer pasture. Therefore, here you can always see herds of sheep, cows and horses. The shepherds themselves during this period live with families in yurts (dwellings of ancient nomads), many of which you can also see on this tour.

In the second part of the tour, you will see the picturesque mountain lake called Issyk, which has a sad history. Issyk is a lake located in Issyk gorge 68 km from Almaty. Height above sea level - 1756 meters. It was formed about 8-10 thousand years ago as a result of a grand mountain collapse. The lake is surrounded by rocky mountains and forests. Almost all types of flora grow here. The water in the lake is cold and clean. Rainbow trout are found here.
