    Unforgettable photo tour to Charyn State Natural Park, representing itself a strip of foothill plains and intermountain hollows on both sides of Charyn river. The park is rich not only in unique natural objects and complexes, but also in historical and cultural heritage...

    Route: Almaty Region (Kazakhstan)

    Season: January - December

    Best Period: April - June, September - November

    Charyn State Natural Park represent itself a strip of foothill plains and intermountain hollows on both sides of Charyn river - of the largest Ili river inflow within Kazakhstan. Charyn river valley is the unique location of the remains of prehistoric flora and fauna. In the lower reaches of Charyn river and its tributary Temirlik there is a unique place, where relict species of Sogdian ash-tree grow. According to a legend, another 5 million years ago, a wind was brought a winged seed of Sogdian ash-tree in this so-called «Valley of Yurts.» Millions of years passed, mountains and climate changed, mammoths disappeared. But the ash-tree still remained... In 1964, the ash-tree grove was given the status of a monument of nature. The four trees of approximately the same age are fenced in the grove. It is some kind of open-air museum. Botanists believe that the age of these trees is over a thousand years. Charyn Canyon - a natural complex, unique of its kind not only in Kazakhstan, but also throughout the world. It was formed in the epoch of the Paleogene and reminds Colorado Grand Canyon in North America, though inferior to him in size. The height of the steep canyon slopes is 150-300 meters. The extreme ruggedness of relief impresses: numerous gullies and ravines form a dense, disordered network. Wind and water have created the beautiful "Valley of Castles", where you all the time are surrounded by bizarre towers, built of sedimentary rocks. Valley length is more than 2 km, the width - 20-80 meters. Over millions of years the nature has been creating a unique architecture, carefully and deliberately erecting magnificent castles. You can spend hours wandering among the strange towers and poles, marveling at the lush imagination of nature.
