The weather was perfect.
And the views were breathtakingly beautiful.

Looking back we could see the tourist center by the lake, partly hidden under the big trees.

...and forms the narrow and feisty Iskander-Darya that we were going to follow today.
Finally we arrived to the falls.
The river plunges nearly 40 meters down between the steep rock walls that look like they are coming together above it.
Here is a areal view of the place where we were, the iron platform was strong but not pretty :)
The platform made it possible to see the falls in a really amazing way, but I could not make myself to walk all the way to the end.
Others had no difficulties in making use of the platform.
These are my children whom I carried for nine months in my womb and gave birth to with pain, whom I cherish and if you go and fall down it will be awful so lets just go back to the firm ground and eat some lunch, okay? Children? Come to mommy?
It was a wonderful mixture of awe and shuddering seeing that fall.
See the bird flying? The white little spot? They had homes on the rocky walls right by the waterfall.
I wouldn't be able not sleep there...all that noise!
We had lunch by the waterfall and then we got back 'home'.
Where I found out that I had missed some spots with sunscreen.
I don't like sunburn.
