The Chon Ak Suu Gorge, also called the Grigoriev Gorge, is 60 km outside of Cholpon-Ata. It starts at the Kungei Ala Too Mountains and descends toward Lake Issyk Kul, following the lake’s shoreline, extending about 35 km in total.

Chon Ak Suu Gorge

The gorge contains smooth slopes blanketed with conifers and a glacier fed river running along the bottom. On the banks of the river grow sea-buckthorn berries, raspberries, and barberries. During the summer months, the Chon Ak Suu Gorge hosts the yurt camps of Kyrgyz nomads who enjoy meeting travelers and sharing about their way of life.

The Grigoriev Gorge is also home to 3 different alpine lakes: Lake Nizhnee, “Lower Lake,” Lake Srednee, “Middle Lake,” and Lake Verkhnee, “Upper Lake.”  These lakes are located at 3 different altitudes kilometers apart from each other. At the higher altitudes of 3000-3500 meters, you’ll stumble across vast expanses of alpine meadows.  Looking down on the whole are two exquisite mountain peaks topped with snow, Eshenbulak (4647m) and Kum Bel (4200m).
