    When we go to the Medeo direction, up on the Dostyk Avenue, there is a road, turning left hand to Butakovka. A waterfall is actually very close to the city centre and will make you surprised with great nature view. This must be unique only for Almaty city. This is a trekking path going along a small stream that ends by a waterfall. The way to the waterfall is surrounded by the rose berries, so you can taste them a lot during the summer season.

    This trip can be organized with mounting bikes.

    One of the outstanding attractions of this place is a natural waterfall. Getting to him from the specific place of arrival is not difficult. To do this, you need to pass the path along the stream, at the end of which there is a waterfall. This place is simply created for family and individual relaxation. There has everything: clean air, picturesque views, the opportunity to fully experience all the joys of being in nature.

    The waterfall is considered to be the best place for relaxation in the entire suburbs of Almaty. Indeed, you can’t imagine the best conditions for outdoor recreation. Since Butakovka became an integral part of the Ile - Alatau State Park in 1996, negligent tourists and lovers of harming nature have stopped polluting the environment in these places.
