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.
