Charyn Canyon 1 day tour
The Canyon of The Charyn River is located in Raiymbek district of Almaty oblast in 180 km distance from Almaty. The canyon is more than 100 km. There is a different varieties of relict trees in it, such as Sogdian ash-tree, a survivor of the Ice Age, and turanga. The route is designed for year-round visits (free of dirt, long duration of the warm season). The most comfortable months for tourists are April / May and September / October. At the same time the snow canyons also have their own unique appeal.
Departure from Almaty is at 07:00. We collect participants from a single point, which is convenient for customers.
Why is it so early? It allows maximum coverage of both canyons and the viewing platforms. Regular bus tour includes a visit to A Valley of Castles only, whereas our Jeep tour has at least four more places that capture your imagination in the canyons.
Also, the heat kicks in after 11 am in the canyons, so you need to go through the Valley of Castles at least while it is still cool.
We return to Almaty by 20:00.
