Barskoon Valley

Karakol, Kyrgyzstan

The Barskoon valley with its two waterfalls and alpine meadows is so beautiful that Yuri Gagarin spend his holidays here after he returned from space. Or so the story goes and there are even two monuments put up to remember his visit.

The scenic valley and the short hikes to the Barskoon waterfalls make it the perfect getaway for an easy going day trip from Karakol or Bokonbaevo if you have your own transport.
