  • 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.

  • I have enough strength and patience to get closer to the waterfall! Narrow steep footpath led us to the nearest point on the same location, you must completely his greatness, power and danger! It's a unique feeling, but it is worth this!

  • In Barskoon Canyon are several waterfalls. The largest and highest of them Tears Barca. Waterfall same Bowl of Manas is smaller, 10-15 meters in height. From the bottom to the foot of the mountains to reach the falls of helps animals trail. If you follow water noise. In early may, the waterfall was still partially frozen after the winter, mostly in its upper part. On the rocks, you can approach the bottom of the waterfall and take pictures, but be careful-the stones are slippery from water.
