Gorge Kegety.

Walk o Kegety gorge in Kyrgyz Ala-Too ridge.

“Sweetness shudders through the land
as if, freed from the heat,
nature’d scooped spring waters in her hand
and splashed her burning feet”

Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev. “Summer evening”.

Trip from Bishkek to Kegety gorge.

The gorge Kegety is on northern slopes of a ridge Kyrgyz Ala-Too, in 35 kilometers from the well-known architecturally-archeologic complex «The Tower of the Burana». The settlement Kegety is at an input in gorge.
After we pass settlement Kegety road goes deep into gorge Kegety on the left coast along the river Kegety. Ninety kilometers east of Bishkek lies Kegety valley with steep forested slopes.
The map shows a road passing over the mountains towards Kochkor - but it is not really passable - the road is blocked by landslides and even in the height of summer, it is almost impossible to get there on horseback.
One of the largest tributaries is the river, At-Djailoo, located 11 km from the forest. At-Djailoo gorge forms a beautiful suburb, where mines as well as a cascading waterfall are located. It will take one to two days to get to Kel-Tor lake (known as Dead Lake) with its turquoise water.
From the gorge, you can visit Bel-Saz jailoo, Sharkeratma waterfall, Kushkonok and Kyzyl-Belez forests, as well as Chaund Gorom and Kara-Unkur (Crying cave) places. It is also possible to make a trip to the neighbouring gorges such as Tuyuk and Karagai-Bulak.
There is a 20-meter waterfall, where the water is overthrown from the limy terrace. This waterfall is located very close to road that goes through the gorge and is convenient for tourists. Kegety village lies at the entrance of the gorge.
The road to the gorge separates from the main highway from Ivanovka and goes through the following villages - Tokmok, Kegety.
