Charyn Canyon

Interesting natural phenomena - Charyn river canyon - is situated in Southern Kazakhstan, about 160 km far from Almaty to the East. Fantastic rocky remains made by wind, sun and water, and green oasis with the fast stream of the Charyn river (available for rafting of 6 category) on the bottom of the canyon make this area worth to visit for travellers!
