Kegeti is also famous for its waterfall, dropping 20 m (65 feet) into the gorge. The waterfall is easy to reach, which means that both places are frequently visited by tourists. It is also an excellent place for horseback riding, another reason why tourists frequent Kegeti.
Nearby are other famous sites, including Kel-Tor Gorge, with a small “dead sea” and Burana Tower, one of Kyrgyzstan’s most famous archeological sites. Visitors can also travel to Bel-Saz, which is a summer pasture, or jailoo.
Dozens of various mammals live in Kegeti, as well as birds, like falcons, golden eagles, and gyrfalcons.
