As the lake is located at the height of 3016m above sea level, the fabulous views seem to be so incredible that visitants can be speechlessly amazed. The lake seems to be fishless in the very beginning of its recognition by the people, but then in the times of the Soviet Union various kinds of fish were brought here on purpose. The dwelling of the real nomads will be provided for a sleep.

The route is going along the mountains of Tien Shan and our guests can travel with pleasure as air is clean and fresh. The Tash Rabat is presented by the building of 31 rooms made in the very mountains. There is also the pit where bottom is not seen.

The name of the gorge means "black valley". Its pastures are used by incredible animals yaks, which are main providers of wool for the locals.
