Barskoon gorge is located on the southern shore of Lake Issyk Kul, 80 km far from Karakol. The length of the valley is about 30 km. At the beginning of the gorge grow rare shrubs and steppe grasses. On both slopes of the canyon rise huge Tien-Shan spruce trees. Above 2800 m grow juniper groves.

Barskoon Gorge

Along the road running through the gorge of Barskoon there are unusual monuments such as the Soviet truck on the platform and a bust of the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, vacationing on the southern shore of Issyk Kul after his flight into space.

From the gorge you can see the snowy peaks of the surrounding mountains, the highest and most beautiful ones are the Peak of Panfilov Heroes (4610 m) and the Peak of the World Peace Council (4310 m). Barskoon gorge is famous for its cascading waterfalls. The most picturesque have interesting names: Tears of a Bars, Oldman Beard, Splashes of Champagne and Cup of Manas.

Through the gorge runs the road to the Kumtor gold mine, and it is noteworthy that in many small tributaries of the river can be seen the pieces of golden sand shining in the sun.
