Getting There & Away

Marshrutka 303 (55som, 1½ hours) departs twice per day from Bishkek's Eastern Bus Station to the village of Kegeti, at the foot of the valley. From there it's about 10km up the valley to a T-junction – left to Kichi-Kegeti and Köl-Tör Lake, or right to Chon-Kegeti and the Kegeti waterfall.
