Take a trek along Charyn Canyon, a vast river gorge known for its interesting rock formations. More than 80 km (50 mi ) in length and reaching depths of 150 m (490 ft), the canyon features hiking trails through its impressive scenery. Although the drive from Almaty is long and bumpy, you'll be rewarded with panoramic views and picturesque riverside spots, great for camping or a picnic. Bring plenty of supplies, as the area lacks facilities. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Charyn Canyon by using our Almaty Province tourist route planner.

Really wonderful natural sight, awesome and photogenic landscape. In the day, there are lots of tourists, especially in the weekend. But you must see it. more »
Здесь нужен хороший гид, который поведет вас не по основной туристической тропе. Тогда это будет очень крутое путешествие. Это очень красивый каньон и он стоит того, чтобы до него доехать. more »Here you need a good guide that will lead you not on the main tourist trail. Then it will be a very tough journey. This is a very beautiful Canyon and it is worth it.View original
Были в этом месте зимой, и в снегу каньон не менее прекрасен. Здесь даже под новый год значительно теплее, чем в Алма-Аты. Мы столкнулись с тем, что в не сезон до каньона добраться очень не просто.

We have found that in the off-season to get Canyon is not easy. Do not conduct tours and rental offices do not provide cars so who is going to leave the city on a sightseeing because the roads are bad, so the machines cost sensors, locking the engine if the car is removed at great distance from the city. Obzvoniv all car rental companies, found only one who no matter how far we go, called Doskar, is karshering. Price is not much more expensive than at the others, fuel included. Yes and when we passed these 200 km, discovered that on the road there are no too disorganised plots, tolerable. The place is stunning. I want to stay there longer. Absolute silence, oppressive. Unforgettable echo. No picture does not transmit sensations that one experiences there. At the top there is no infrastructure, so food and drinks bring.View original
