  • You need to arrive at the meeting point (Astana International Hotel) at least 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Then, you'll hop into a comfortable car or minivan and head to Charyn Canyon. Before the tour, we provide 1 liter of bottled water. Feel free to bring your own snacks, tea, or coffee in a container with a lid. The journey to the canyon takes approximately 3 hours, during which your guide will share interesting facts about the history and nature of the region, Kazakh people, their life, and traditions. En route, we will pause in Baiseit village to visit the local market. To fully savor the national flavor, you'll also enjoy lunch at a local cafe.
  • Upon reaching Charyn Canyon, you'll first marvel at the panorama from the observation deck. Next, descend to the canyon bottom and take a 2 km (1.2 mi) stroll through the Valley of Castles, surrounded by walls of peculiar shapes. The trail gradually descends, leading you to an oasis on the Charyn River, where an eco-park with yurts (traditional dwellings) and a small open-air café await during the summer. Following a break, we will go to another observation point for a stunning panoramic view. After spending approximately 3 hours in the canyon, we will drive back to Almaty. You'll return to your hotel between 6:00 and 7:00 PM.
