In the national park Ile-Alatau there is a beautiful corner of nature - Turgen Gorge. In the world of untouched and unspoiled beauty of nature. There are no paths, the roads are the same, as in 2003, when you need to clearly count your strength that has been traversed there.

The sun's rays almost do not fall in the gorge, there are pockets of permafrost. Up the gorge to the water Kairak. A fall of almost 60 meters in height, you will see unique moss forests, their vegetation on the swings, which are about 40 cm thick. You can also reach the waterfall on a dirt road, surrounded by no less picturesque forests rich in flora and fauna. Just 9 km from the fork, about 2 hours walk with stops for rest.

On the way to Turgen gorge, along the same river, you can reach the high plateau of Assy. The gorge goes 44 km to a huge plateau Assy (2560m). Assy is a large intermountain valley, about 40 km long and up to 10 km wide and about 2700 meters above sea level. The plateau is located between the basins of the Shelek and Turgen rivers. The road to Turgen gorge is not available for all types of transport.

In ancient times there were caravans from Europe to the east - to China and India. Turgen Gorge is famous for its waterfalls and relict Chin-Turgen mossy trees growing on the permafrost. Coniferous and mixed forests, alpine and subalpine meadows, lakes and springs, medicinal plants and berries. Dry cheeks are found in large numbers in the Turgen Gorge: Semenov Maple, Wild Apricot, Mushketov's Kurgan. If in the gorge Yesik spruce covers inclined targets from 1350-1400 m, in the Turgen gorge the spruce belt starts at an altitude of 1650 m.

There are signs of a person over 5,000 years old, both nomadic and sedentary.

An astrophysical observatory with one of the possible telescopes in the world is built on the top of the plateau. The high plateau faces east along the Assy River, and this has great sporting prospects in terms of creating a world-class ski resort.
