On the territory of the gorge there are two other small gorges – At-Jailoo and Kel-Tor, which are part of the Kegety. In the gorge there is a beautiful lake Kel-Tor, the Kegeti River, as well as a high mountain pass, which is located at an altitude of 4000 meters above sea level.

Not far from the Kegeti gorge there are jailoos (pastures) and one of the most famous archaeological monuments of Kyrgyzstan – the Burana Tower – a minaret of the XI century.
