We went on a girl's hike last Sunday. We were planning to go to Chymbulak, but the bus never showed up, so we went the other direction, towards Almarasan and hiked up the fork to the right, up the road a few km until a guy picked us up and drove us to the end of the road. Then we hiked up the river gorge and entered the peace of having no other people around :)
found another pipe, this one half the size of the previous one, and hiked along it high above the river, until it ended.
and a weasel. This is the best shot I got, since they were continually popping in and out holes between the rocks.
this is what we crossed on our way back, since our shoes were wet and too slippery for the pipeline.
