Summary

Scenic waterfall over granite cliff with rock and ice climbing options

Approach

From Almaty, head south towards the Medeo (Ice stadium) using bus no. 29P towards Butakovka (Бутаковка).

At the final bus stop ("Ecopost"), further up the road, there is a lift gate, where you have to pay a 491 Tenge, an entrance fee into the park territory.

Keep following the road for another 2 – 3 km, and you will arrive at the car park at the end of asphalt road.

From there, follow the track up the valley along the river until its fork. Cross the small bridge into the left valley over a path of rough boulders until you reach Butakovka waterfall, where you arrive directly at the lower sector of the crag.
