|The approaches to the passes
and mountains of Terskey Alatau range get the beginning at the beautiful
valleys deeply forested with the relict Tien Shan firs, which are becoming
rare in the other parts of Tien Shan due to deforestation process. The
are many springs and small streams in Terskey Alatau, so you have cross
over them some time a day.
