Overview
Kazakhstanians compare the Charyn canyon with the Grand Canyon in the United States. And although the Charyn canyon is smaller in size to the Grand Canyon, but not inferior with its beauty and grandeur - fans of hiking and wildlife from all over the world come here. The Charyn Canyon is located 200 kilometers away from Almaty, near the border with China, on the territory of the Charyn National Natural Park. The canyon stretches for 154 kilometers along the Charyn River and is formed from sedimentary rocks which are 12 million years old.

    Charyn Canyon National Park
    Stop: 4 hours
    The Charyn Canyon stretches 154km along the Charyn River (one of the deepest rivers of the Northern Tien Shan mountains). Wind, water and sand sculpted Charyn’s red sandstone to form its shapes and shades. Some of the cliffs resemble particular figures, which is why some parts of the canyon are also called the "Valley of Castles", the Witch’s Gorge, and the Ghosts Gorge.

My teens and I had a great time exploring Charyn Canyon with our guide Togzhan. The views were gorgeous especially from the top. So be sure to climb up rather than just walk on the flat ground. It's very cold in the winter but the view and experience is well worth it.
