Canyon Fairy Tale, Tosor

(4.3/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at rainbow-colored rocks, weirdly and fantastically shaped by the wind over centuries, at Canyon Fairy Tale. Sitting on the southern shores of the huge Lake Issyk-Kul, the canyon features rock formations resembling giant termite hills, with shades of red, yellow, and orange. Set against the backdrop of the snow-capped northern Tian Shan mountains, the canyon provides an amazing landscape for taking memorable photos. Use your imagination and try to see interesting shapes in the rocks, some of which resemble snakes, dragons, hippos, a sleeping giant, a castle, and even the Great Wall of China. The magical effect caused by light falling over the fabulous shapes and cracked rocks make a postcard-like scene to remember. Bring plenty of water for your walk through the isolated canyon. Put Canyon Fairy Tale at the forefront of your travel plans using our Tosor tourist route planner.

  • Was in that Canyon 2000 g. calmly drove unoccupied. In 2016 come show your kids. Incomprehensible Bazar at the entrance, barrier and booth. Russian nufiga did not understand but money demands, asked for any documents, here he has memory and it really otshiblo. The machine is driven off to the side, moved to Pradik, drove around a barrier on the left side and five minutes enjoyed running tuple and solemn screaming near mount guard.

  • The fairy tale-region is no Canyon, but a landscape bizarrely shaped battlements and walls and turrets. Whether fabulous has effect on visitors, depends on whether you want - see the area with a surfeit of imagination or naturalist sobriety, or both. I would not have been likely on the idea, this fairytale know because to my knowledge of the geomorphologic forming processes are too far advanced. But it doesn't matter! In pretty much every visitor, the shapes and colors of this area are likely to raise enthusiasm. Two large types of design are significant: a the little compacted sediments with pale yellow, grey and orange ribbons, which second as well as the harder type of red sandstone, almost vertically are tilted. On weekends in the summer things can get here reasonably hard, because probably almost any domestic and foreign travel group here is coming. This is not bad but because the desert "Wild West flair" extends over a vast area which offers plenty of ways to go the occasional crowds out of the way. Definitely I will come here every time, once I'm in the area - a formidable replacement for analogue regions in Utah or Nevada, estimate has learned, but like always no longer visit for whatever reason.
