80 km southeast of Bishkek, located there on the map for the purposes of this review, Issyk-Ata Gorge is both scenic and lined with thermal heated water. Which is why a resort has sprang up beside it. There's also a beautiful waterfall cascading down from a point not far from the resort. Not many foreigners stay at the resort, most of the ones who do are there at the beginning of a trek.
