The Gates of Touyk Su, Almaty, Kazakhstan.

A couple of hours driving up to Maloye Almatinskoye gorge, the dirt road leads up all the way to glaciers. This spot had gotten the name as it marks a transition (like a gate to) to apline zone above the tree line. The perfect (geological) U shape of the valley was carved by giant glacier some time before mr.Gore won Nobel Prize for his famous Microsoft Powerpoint presentation.
