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.
