The Altyn Arashan Gorge is located in a valley of the same name just 10 km east of the city of Karakol. The Altyn Arashan River flows through the valley and near the end of the river is a small village called Ak Suu, formerly known as Teploklyuchenka.

Altyn Arashan Gorge

Just beyond the village, the gorge opens up, exposing vast forests of Tien Shan spruces as well as slopes filled with wildflowers, herbs, and berries will such a beautiful palette of colors that it will take your breath away!

The most popular destination in the gorge is the radon hot springs.  Other popular spots are Lake Kashka Suu and Sharkyratma, Tash Tektir, and Kuldurek Falls, which can be reached after hiking for a few hours through the gorge. For those that don’t mind venturing into higher altitudes, there also another alpine lake called Lake Ala Kol located at 3500 meters.  The highest points travelers can get to are the ice capped Aksu Wall (5022 m) and Soviet Russia Peak (4900 m).

Wildlife in the Altyn Arashan Gorge includes mountain goats, marmots, deer, wild boars, and bears.
