The Sokuluk Gorge
It is located on the south side of Ala Too and is about 31 km long. (Above the stone spring). The plateau is 22 km in the upper part, 9 km in the lower part. The foot of the gorge is at an altitude of 1400-3000 m above sea level, the highest point of closed types is at an altitude of 4100 m. The relative depth of the gorge is 900-2200 m, the bottom is narrow 50-200 m, the sides are steep 35-90°. The terrain is difficult. It was formed under the influence of ancient glaciers and water. The upper part of the Sokuluk and its tributaries consists of steep valleys ending in steep rocky closed ridges covered with modern glaciers. At the foot of these valleys there are narrow V-shaped gorges formed by water erosion. There are narrow and deep grooves on the sides of the gorge. From Tosh-Bulak in winter to the north, the gorge passes into a wide (1-3 km) valley, forming dense rocks.
