5 Canyons of Charyn river

Canyons of Charyn river situated about 300km from Almaty City. The canyon “The Valley of Castles”. It is, no doubt, one of the most popular places to visit in Kazakhstan. As a rule, the vast majority of tourists limit their visits to only this canyon, as it is the largest and, most importantly, accessible. In fact, there are other canyons – Zhabyr (“Moon”), Bestamak, “Black”, Temirlik Canyons… We will see them all! The variety of bizarre forms, colors, landscapes will leave an indelible impression and a desire to return to these places. Do not forget the camera and spare memory cards!
