The most easily accessible waterfall in the Almaty Province
Bear Waterfall (also called Medvejiy Waterfall) is a favorite place for travel agencies to conduct tours. The route to it is easy and short - only one kilometer (approx. 1 yd) along a well-equipped path. The waterfall is located in a deep rocky niche, on the southern slope of the Karash Ridge, where the Bear Stream flows. The height of the waterfall is 29 meters (95 ft). The waterfall got its name because of a family of bears that live here.
