Kolsay & Kaindy
Lakes and Charyn
Duration | 2 days
4 hours of trekking
Walking distance | 5 km
Kolsay & Kaindy Lakes and Charyn Canyon are the most picturesque destinations and “must visit” attractions in Almaty region that you cover in two day tour. You will have opportunity to visit canyon, enjoy its amazing view, and walk and explore the Castle Valley created by rocks and sands.
In just couple of hours from the Canyon, we will change the landscape and appear in mountains, so called Kazakhstani Switzerland. There you will enjoy pure nature and wonderful Kolsay lakes.
Not far from Kolsay, we will visit one of the wonders of Kazakhstan – Kaindy lake. The lake was formed during the earthquake that blocked the river path, which in turn resulted in collection of water on the forest. Tops of the trees still rise above the water creating amazing view that you cannot see anywhere in the world.
