Route: Almaty Region (Kazakhstan)

Season: January to December


Day 1. Transfer to the Kyzylzhar Canyon

Early departure and arrival at the Red Canyon. Camping down, lunch and walk.

You will enjoy the fascinating views of Boguty. After the rain, the territory looks unearthly, bright red, like Mars. A volcano used to be here, as is evidenced by the massifs of solidified lava, formed during the dinosaur age.

Return to dinner in the camp. Overnight stay in tents.

Day 2. Visit to the Kyzylzhar Canyon and the Valley of Castles

We invite you to travel along the Charyn Canyon, where you will see the Valley of Castles. Tourists will have lunch and a walk.

Nature in these places is amazing. The Canyon resembles the US Grand Canyon, but is smaller in size. The sight of sheer rocks is impressive. An unusual relief is formed by a number of hollows, randomly crossing and hanging over deep ravines. The main architect here was the wind, which created towers from sedimentary rocks, unusual in beauty and grandeur. This is the Valley of Castles, named so because natural structures here are similar to the architectural ones. The nature's abilities are amazing.

Overnight stay in tents.

Day 3. Visiting the Valley of Castles, visiting the canyons of Bestamak and Temirlik

In the morning after breakfast we have a transfer to the canyon of Bestamak, known as the Moon Valley. Its special feature is the rounded soft surface that resembles that of the Moon. You seem to travel through the lunar crater, feeling how diverse the nature is in these places.

Lunch and a trip to Temirlik.

The canyon was named after the Temirlik River, which springs from the Ketmen Ridge. The nature here is beautiful with rich flora. The main gem of the local flora is the relict ash, which is a natural sanctuary.

Dinner by the fire at the camp, overnight stay.

Day 4. From Temirlik Canyon back to Almaty

After breakfast and packing up, transfer to the sightseeing platform. Here you will see the Valley of Castles in all its splendor. Departure back, lunch at the cafe on the way. Return to the city at about 8 PM.
