Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 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.

  • Indeed, the entrance fee you need to pay. We were in the car, gave to 50 kgs (= 50 rubles) per person, the feeling that this arbitrariness, but with anyone here understand, moreover, that the price is low. The signpost after the turn, and after a paid barrier need to pass 2 km (not in the mountain, where there are also road), further there is parking for several cars. Be sure to wear shoes with musical freestyle retentive soles, comfortable and trousers/shorts, dress was uncomfortable climb you need any. Not I her finger when held for stone during the descent, and at the end of the bypass moved out with stone, fell and zanozila finger (Thorn, incidentally, could not get left, later had to cut out), but it does not cast a visit, just have to careful. Types of course, stunning, especially liked the variety of colors in the mountains. Here you can spend more than one hour, but no infrastructure there, be ready. The road to the parking lot sand, go like on the beach. We lived in Kadzhi-Sae, on a trip spent a couple of hours, but even if you are far beyond this place-try to get there, you won't regret it.
