The Turgen Gorge is one and half hour drive from Almaty and is known, mostly for its waterfalls. Getting to the first one, called Medvezhyi, is pretty easy, about 2 km by stony track and you will see impressive waterfall of 30 meters high. Other waterfall named Kairaksky is not so high, but still interesting to see: massive flow forms 3 cascades and it gives real fresh after the long track. The road is about 8 km (one way) and will take much more time so, walk to it turns into a real weekend trip. At the same time, the path to the waterfall runs along a very picturesque gorge, which is a pleasure to be in!
