About Barskoon River Valley:

A 10 kilometer strech of the the Barskon river valley offers loads of bouldering in what is easily the biggest bouldering area in Northern Kyrgyzstan, possibly the entire country. Tons of alpine boulders line the valley floor in and around the famous Barskoon waterfall('vodopod' in russain). There are only a handful of problems done here, with hundreds of first ascents waiting to be climbed.

Directions: Any taxi can make the 20 kilometer drive from the village to the waterfall area. The one way fare from the village should cost about 150/200 som for the car.
