Overview

Charyn Canyon is a natural monument composed of sedimentary rocks, the age of which is about 12 million years. The height of the steep mountains of the canyon is about 150-300 m.

There are two exciting stops in addition to Castle valley: the Moon canyon and the merge point of Temirlik and Charyn rivers.
