The Juuku Gorge is located west of the Chon Kyzyl Suu Gorge, 75 km outside of Karakol. Spruce forests carpet the walls of the gorge for 50 km with red rocks lining the floor below. Above the gorge you can see stark glaciers reaching up into the clouds as well as It Tash Peak (4,808 m).

Juuku Gorge

The Juuku Gorge also contains various waterfalls and alpine lakes in spades: Lake Kashka Suu, Lake Juuku, Lake Chokolyk Kel, Lake Juukuchak, Lake Mayloye, Lake Nizhnee, and the list goes on. The alpine lakes of the Juuku Gorge display a fascinating variety of colors; some are green, others are blue and purple.

The Juuku Gorge has the most diverse array of wildlife of all of Kyrgyzstan’s silk road gorges including stone martens, mountain goats, chukars, deer, partridges, snow cocks, and wild rams. 

Those who appreciate history should note that the Juuku Gorge contains petroglyphs from the 6th – 1st centuries BC, stone sculptures, and ancient gravesites.
