Kyrgyzstan waterfalls

Kyrgyzstan has a countless number of waterfalls. Some are almost impossible to reach but there are also plenty that can be easily or relatively easily reached that we focus on below. Many of the Kyrgyzstan waterfalls mentioned here are also included in our Kyrgyzstan Tours.

Shar cascade waterfall

Shar (or Shaar) Waterfall is the tallest in Central Asia with the staggering height of more than 400 meters! It’s height is hard to comprehend without wandering just below it as the surrounding cliffs of the mountain range are also huge in size. The waterfall can only be reached by horseback or hiking. The path is not suited for first time riders but the ones that have already a bit of experience can manage the rocky and hilly paths well. This waterfall is not the easiest to reach but it is for sure worth the trouble.

Barskoon waterfalls

Barskoon waterfalls are a chain of waterfalls in the Barskoon valley, at the southern shore of Issyk Kul. The third waterfall in Barskoon is expeptionally beautiful but climbing there requires a bit of fitness and you cannot have any problems with your legs as the path up is steep and sometimes also slippery. The first and second waterfalls of the Barskoon chain are easier to reach and the first one can be even ridden to. The autumn colors that start in September make these waterfalls even more spectacular.

Arslanbob waterfalls

Arslanbob village area has two beautiful waterfalls that are easily reached. They are named simply the small waterfall and the large waterfall. The small one is inside the village and has a cave next to it. The large waterfall does not have more water compared to the small one but it is considerably taller. It can be reached with the help of local Soviet cars that transfer people there constantly from the village main square. The best views are after a short climb through dilapidated stony stairs.

It is located just next to the first curve of the 33 parrots serpentine road leading to Son Kul lake, one of the most visited destinations of all Kyrgyzstan. One only needs to walk few hunded meters along a path to the waterfall. The Son kul waterfall is not that high but the amount of water is abundant as all the water leaving the lake and its large catchment area come through here.
