Sary-Jaz - is a unique place where you can fully retire and escape from bustle, in an embrace of beauty, tranquility and majesty of the valleys and mountain ranges.
On the way there, we will visit Inylchek which is considered to be a lost city and attracts many tourists by its mystery. In Soviet times there was a huge manufactory producing non-ferrous and ferrous metals. We will also visit Kara-Tash hot springs with hot radon water, which flows under high black rock. The width of the spring is 4 meters, the length is about 50 meters and the depth is about 1.7-2 meters. The water temperature is about 55C degrees.
Inylchek village is located at the confluence of the rivers Saryjaz and Enilchek. With the closure of the tin mine, the population fell from 5,000 to less than 20 families. At the 2009 census, their population was 345. It lies at the head of one of the few good roads into the southeast of the province and that is why is considered to be a base for mountaineers and serious hikers.
Recommendations for equipment: warm closes, cap, swimming suit, sandals, towels, sun cream and sun glasses.
