Charyn & Kolsay Lakes & Kaindy Lake, 3 days tour

Charyn & Kolsay Lakes & Kaindy Lake, 3 days tour has been crafted with you in mind. 

Charyn Canyon 

Often compared to the Grand Canyon in the US, Charyn Canyon is as stunning in its majestic colorfulness as the Grand is in its enormity. Charyn is still impressively huge though, stretching for more than 150 km along the Sharyn river and reaching 300 m in height. 

Kaindy Lake 

Easily the youngest naturally formed lake on Earth (circa 1911), Kaindy lake is a beauty to behold: the tree trunks jutting out of the crystal clear lake almost resemble the spears of warriors hiding underwater awaiting an order or of masts of sunken ships. 

Kolsay Lakes 

The more the merrier. More so when there is a trio of stunningly picturesque lakes located one after another at altitudes from 1800 to 2700 meters. Known as “The Pearls of the Northern Tien Shan”, Kolsay lakes are quite possibly the most beautiful liquid triplets in existence.
