Photo and description
15 km from Lake Issyk-Kul are the Terskey Ala-Too mountains, where one of the most picturesque natural attractions of the region, the Dzhety-Oguz gorge, is located, which means “ Seven bulls. " The 37 km long gorge got this name in honor of the reddish rocks, the number of which has increased in recent years due to the influence of wind and water. The cold mountain river Djety-Oguz, the waters of which feed the Maiden Spit waterfall, has made its way along the bottom of the gorge. Walking excursions are organized to it.
The slopes of the gorge are overgrown with bushes and trees, mainly firs. Here you can see mushrooms, modest flowers, various herbs. Mountain goats and wolves live in the gorge.
Near the gorge a few decades ago, a tourist base Jety-Oguz was built, which still works. Here you can book a room for a few days to explore the area at your own pace. The first step is to see the bizarre Broken Heart rock, which got its name from its characteristic shape. Another local attraction is the Jety-Oguz cave, which is about 100 meters deep. Groundwater undermines the walls of the cave, which threatens to collapse, so you should be extremely careful when visiting it. If travelers have time, then you can go to the high-mountain lakes, however, it is worth hiring a guide so as not to get lost.
A dirt road is laid along the gorge, which ends after 10 km. Further you can only go on foot or horseback. Local people willingly ride horses for tourists.
