To see this beauty, it is necessary to drive 200 км by the speedway in a comfortable minibus and together with the guide descend into the canyon. Comfortable tables are waiting for you on the river bank in the shade of ash-trees.
The tumultuous river at the bottom of the deep canyon slows down turning around the spacious meadow dominated by magnificent yellow cliffs. This is the Valley of Castles – the most picturesque place on the Charyn river, located 200 kilometers east of Almaty.
