Charyn Canyon

“Charyn Canyon” – a wonderful monument of nature that has been preserved for millions of years, is extremely picturesque and very varied in geological and geomorphological respect. The height of the steep slopes of the canyon reaches 150-300 m.

It affects the extreme ruggedness of terrain: the many gullies and ravines form a dense, disordered network. Wind and water have created this beautiful “Valley of Castles”. The length of the valley – more than 2 km, width – 20 – 80 m. Throughout the route you are surrounded by bizarre tower built of sedimentary rocks, whose age is about 12 million years. 

All this time, this architecture created by nature, carefully and slowly, to erect majestic castles. You can spend hours wandering past the strange towers, pillars and marvel at the lush imagination of nature!
