    In sunny weather, early in the morning when a large number of tourists yet, a place of such beauty that do not understand where you are, what part of the world. It is very convenient to travel by car, you can get to any place in the Valley. The waterfall trail on foot, and it is better on horse. Good luck to everyone!

    The scenery and view is very good. It is very steep if you're going all the way up. The path should have been better maintained.  more »

    Barskoon-probably my favorite place in Kyrgyzstan. There is everything to have a rest from city vanity and not be bored on holiday. Green meadows, mountain trails among huge fir trees, River and waterfalls, of course! You can get here by car, or the simplest option is to take a guided tour (you will, tell about these sites and the dead) waterfall 2 here is quite large, and I advise you to climb. The first waterfall "bowl of Manas" literally in a 10-minute walk from the Gers (yurts-Cafe is located at the foot of the mountain). This waterfall can be easy even slaps:) from "Bowls of Manas" can already climb higher to the largest waterfall "tears of Barca." Here already without sneakers won't do, as the climb goes on mountain paths, sometimes quite steep. Young children and elderly this may already be difficult. The climb takes 20 minutes (but not to the waterfalls and to the Meadow, where the entire waterfall perfectly visible). Ideal-to come to this place with tents day at 2-3.
