Day exploring the Ashuu Tor gorge

The Asuu-Tor Gorge begins at the geo-physical station of Chong Kyzyl Suu. The western slope is covered with a dense forest, mainly composed of spruce of Schrenk (Picea schrenkiana), locally called "Tien Shan spruce" and growing at more than 3000 meters. The path is easy and follows the river. After half an hour's walk, an enormous wall rises on the eastern flank and culminates at 4000 meters above sea level and the cascade of the river and lake Shakiratma. After more than 2 hours of walking, the throat branches off to the east. From there it is possible to reach the Ashuu Tor glacier, but asks for a second day's walk. Back by the same path. Overnight at the geo-physical station of Chong Kyzyl Suu.
