 WHERE IS IT?             
 70km to the east from Almaty (2 hours)                
 HOW TO GET THERE? Follow the Kuldja road up to Issyk. Pass by Issyk town and move further in a direction of Turgen. Turn right inside a Turgen gorge (near the entrance to Turgen village), and drive for another 25km by the gorge. It is a National Park, so you will meet the Park’s gate and will have to pay a fee there. You may take a taxi from Almaty, or come with a bus to Issyk or Turgen and then take a local taxi. The map is at a bottom of the page.

   Location and territory 

The camping is just a piece of wild nature of Turgen: it is located at a private area inside a deep spruce forest, in the upper reaches of Turgen River. The river is a natural barrier that isolates a private camp territory from the road, but Trekking Club guests may always use our bridge to cross it.
You may hike to Kairak waterfall from here (5 hours), or may reach
Assy plateau (10km up by the gorge). The location provides great opportunities for day-hikers: any direction is perfect.
