Canyon Fairy Tale, Tosor

#5 of 17 in Nature in Issyk Kul Province
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.

  • The actual Canyon is located in 2 km from the intake point. Entrance fee is 50 kg. Time to spend from 1.5 to 3 hours on the spot, depending on your mood. 1.5 have submitted in our case. Is of the colours but very nice and recommended as a light trekking.
