Canyon Fairy Tale, Tosor

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. Plan a trip to Tosor easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Even recently, the morning the same day, I've used in Issyk-Kul. Breakfast I ate among the trees and flowers. And now covered with red dust climb on a rough wall in the Valley Skazka. "Skazka" is a fairy tale. But it's a fairy tale of the species these horrible, though. Skazka is a beautiful and wonderful place. Carved by wind and water, hills, cliffs, canyons look like shaped out of papier-mâché and painted with ochre, yellow and gray. Among shapes straight from a fairy tale, you can roam endlessly (although the Valley is not large), lost and found. It is worth climbing to the top of the Hill, although sometimes it is not easy. Around the landscape like Mars-dry, dusty, red. Plant a little. The fissures look lizards. It is worth to spend a longer period of time, for example, two hours. Best to arrive in the morning, with plenty of water. Standing in the desert, a harsh landscape, it is hard to believe that almost "around the corner" is a powerful Lake Issyk-Kul.

  • Colored Canyon mountain Tale, fanciful rock formations stunningly beautiful! While there, it seems that you're on another planet, in another dimension-but not on Earth. Probably the impression among people living on the Plains and in metropolitan areas))

  • Picturesque location on the south shore of Issyk Kul, between Tosor and Kaji-Say villages. Red sandstone formations create the beautiful contrast with blue lake and sky and the great scenes for the ph...  more »
