all year round
The Charyn Canyon is a nature sanctuary consisting of sedimentary rocks dating back to around 12 million years in the past. The height of the canyon’s cliffs reaches 150 — 300 meters. The most interesting place for tourists is the scenic Valley of Castles. It is the place where unique plants grow and rare birds from the list of the Red Book live. The round tour of our trip will take in total 3 hours. We will pass through the canyon bottom, surveying its bizarre formations. We will go down to the river bank of Charyn River and will organize a picnic there. Then we will walk through the national-park and will return back.
