Chon-Kyzyl-Suu Valley is located in 60 km west of Karakol city. It extends over approximately 40 km in length through a landscape of fantastic mountains worthy of a movie set. The Kyzyl-Suu valley is the perfect place to get some fresh air and be alone with nature. A feeling of wellness and harmony invades us when we find ourselves near the waters running down the hills with high mountains in the background. A magical and unforgettable moment that words can sometimes not describe. This journey through the valley will take you on tracks lined up with pine forests and green meadows where you can observe herds of horses chewing fresh grass. While going up to the heights of the valley, through the dense forests 2,000 meters above sea level, you may be able to spot some wild animals while picking up mushrooms and berries : wild boars, deers, pheasants, marmots… Keep going for some sightseeing of the small Dzhyly-Suu valley. There, you can enjoy the hot springs of hydrogen sulphide with its warm water that can reach 43°C. In the upper part of the gorge, explore the various passages leading to the Kolpakovsky Glacier, one of the largest glaciers in Terskey Ala-Too.
