A memorable trip to the Tekes Waterfall

For enjoying the view of the spectacular water cascade that descends down the mountainside, plan a trip to Tekes Waterfall. It is formed by the river of the same name, the source of which is located in the glaciers of the Tien Shan.

Geographical characteristics

Famous for its beautiful views, Kazakhstan Tekes Waterfall is located in the Kegen district near the small Kazakh village. Tekes flows in a wide intermountain valley. Two mountain rivers Tekes and Kunges form the main waterway Ili in Semirechye. It is one of the most famous rivers in the Republic.

If you get from Almaty, you will have to spend about 4 hours to overcome 300 km. From the settlement of Zhanatekes, the route runs off-road (about 5 km). We are organizing a waterfall tour on modern jeeps. So we guarantee that our tourists will not experience any discomfort during the journey, even when overcoming difficult sections.

Natural attraction describing

Tekes is a low waterfall, but next to it you can enjoy impressive views. Cascades of icy water boil and form a funnel, framed on different sides by stone formations. There is little vegetation around, mountain landscapes open up before the eyes of travelers. Water flows are carried away along the intermountain valleys.

The uniqueness of the place is also the fact that Tekes waterfall seems to be hidden from prying eyes. To enjoy its beauty, you do not need to climb up. On the contrary, it is necessary to go down to the natural attraction. The descent will not cause difficulties, you just need to be careful. Beautiful panoramas will open at the waterfall, where you can take spectacular photos.

Tour to the Tekes waterfall Almaty will allow enjoying the picturesque scenery. Tourists will see blooming alpine meadows and coniferous trees that cover the slopes of the mountains. On the plateau there are yurts of shepherds who graze sheep in the meadows.
