Kairak Waterfall

It is surrounded by steep rocky slopes, covered by dense forest.

Kairak Waterfall is located on the Bozgul River, the right tributary of the Turgen River. The path to the waterfall begins in the Batan Tract. You'll have to walk 8 km (5 mi) through the forest. It will take approximately 2.5 to 3 hours.

Kairak Waterfall is the largest of the seven waterfalls adorning the slopes of the Turgen Gorge. Its height is about 55 m (180 ft). On the way to Kairak Waterfall you can visit Chinturgen moss spruce forests. Their uniqueness lies in the fact that they grow on moss, about 40 cm (16 in) thick. The sun's rays do not penetrate the tree crowns, and therefore, pockets of permafrost have been preserved here since the Ice Age.

Kairak Waterfall is surrounded by steep rocky slopes, covered by dense forest. At its foot there is a wooden staircase and a viewing platform. Unfortunately, the stairs are wet all the time and pose a certain danger to tourists. The waterfall is located in such a way that the sun's rays practically do not illuminate it, and it is constantly in the shade.
