This area is a great place to take beginner ice climbers. There are 2 waterfalls in very short succession. It is in the shade for the whole day during winter, but that just keeps the ice from melting! There aren't usually many people that go to this waterfall, but you just might run into someone.
To get to the waterfall you first need to get to the Issyk Ata resort. Drive East towards Tokmok and take the turn-off to Issyk Ata. Keep following the road and it dead ends into a parking lot about 25 minutes after the turn. From the parking lot, hike South up the valley. You will pass through the "resort" area and get to a fence that has a small turn style gate that you go through. Follow the path up the valley. The waterfall is visible to your left after about 20-40 minutes (depending on the speed of your group) of hiking. Don't forget to bring a swimsuit and towel to relax in the hot springs after a good climb!
