The river is 34 kilometers long, originates from glaciers and flows into Lake Issyk-Kul. Djailoo was historically used as a gathering place for Kyrgyz elders. Dzhel Karagai Gorge is a forest reserve with meadows and multi-cascade waterfalls. A “yurt village” stands here from June to September, offering a wide range of services. Half of these yurts are offered for guests, and the other half is inhabited by several local families who provide services, entertainment, etc.
To the north of Ak-Suu village are mound complexes at the entrance of the gorge and to the east of it.

The whole area of the settlement is occupied by the modern cemetery.
