Charyn Canyon Trip

Discover one of the most impressive places in Kazakhstan with this trip to the mighty Charyn Canyon. Enjoy this incredible work of nature in one full day, departing from Almaty.

Charyn Canyon Trip

At 9 am, we will meet up at the entrance to the Astana International Hotel in Almaty. Once we are all there, we will board a comfy minibus or car that will take us to the Charyn Canyon, one of the great natural wonders of Kazakhstan.

During a three-hour trip, we will get to know the life of the Kazakh people as the guide explains their history and traditions, which are closely linked to the nature of the country. Alon the way, you will have the opportunity to stop in a rural village and browse the marketplace selling wonderful traditional products. An hour before arriving at the canyon, you will also have a tasty lunch at a local cafe.

When we reach the vicinity of the gorge, we will enjoy a spectacular panoramic view before descending the stairs to bottom of the canyon. We will start a hike that will take us around the beautiful surroundings of Charyn Canyon. We will walk over a miles through the labyrinth of the valley of the Castles while admiring the enormous walls of the canyon and its incredible rock formations. We will reach the shore of the frozen Charyn River, one of the main attractions of the area. There, we will regain our strength with a delicious typical meal.

With our batteries charged, we will take one last opportunity to capture the magnificent canyon on camera at a viewpoint. Finally, we will get back on the minibus that will drop us off in Almaty at 6 pm or 7 pm.
