We start our trekking in a good path toward to Gulkam canyon through Pesochnyi (Sandy) pass (Н = 1830 m; Т = 40 min).  The saddle offers a panoramic view on Chimgansai river valley, Kyzyljar (Red Precipice), ski resort and Chimgan village. Having rested on the saddle, we start a bit steep ascent to Mt. Small Chimgan (H=2096m) Peak offers 360 degree panoramic view (Charvak lake, Chimgan valley). After an hour of descent you reach to picturesque glade surrounded by birch-trees.  Further downstream one can see a narrow entrance to the Gulkam Canyon – one of the most beautiful places in Western Tian-Shan.    Overnight in the tent

2 Day In the morning we start our hiking by going up steady to eastern Chimgan. After 2 hours walking we reach to the green meadow where we have rest and enjoy from the majestic view of Vadaprovod waterfall. After few hours hiking we reach to Gulkamsay River and meet   10 meter waterfall in 7 metres wide. Leaving the gorge behind, proceed down Gulkamsai River along a scenic canyon, crossing the stream several times, wading through the water.  On your left you will see a spring gushing from under the rock.  We return to Tashkent (L=110km; T=1hr 20min) via Yangikurgan and Yusupkhona villages and Charvak water
