- Semenov Gorge
Semenov Gorge, about 30 km long, is located 40 km from the city of Cholpon-Ata. The Ak-Suu River, originating on the glacier, flows into the gorge. The slopes of the gorge are covered with dense forest from the Tien Shan islands and fragrant mountain herbs. Here, sharp rocks and dark green tall trees are perfectly combined with each other, and together they use extraordinarily beautiful landscapes. Among the attractions of the Semenov Gorge, you can highlight the waterfalls at the source of the Ak-Suu river and the swampy Sweet-Bulak lake with sky-blue water. It can be only one day. In Semenov Gorge there is also a recreation center, which operated during the Soviet era, where athletes sometimes come to training camps.
