Description


 

TOURIST PLACES you'll visit:

 

We are glad to introduce you the 3-day tour to the most amazing nature sights of Almaty region: Altyn Emel, Charyn Canyon and Kaindy & Kolsai Lakes. It is the best way to visit these places in a short period of time. This tour is designed so that you can enjoy the views at the best time of the day with the best lighting conditions. Our tour guide will show you the best photo spots and tell you interesting information about the sights.

On the 1st day, we will head towards one of the largest National Parks of Kazakhstan, with an area of 3076 sq.km. called Altyn Emel, which means the Golden Saddle. You will enjoy the surreal beauty of the lime mountains of Aktau and the volcanic Katutau mountains.

In the morning of the 2nd day, you will find yourself at the Singing Dune - a sandy mountain 3 km long and 150 m high. The phenomenon of nature, famous for the fact that in dry weather the sands of the dune emit a sound from a faint squeak to organ melody and even a roar.

Afternoon, the tour will lead you to the most known and popular place is the “Valley of the Castles”, one of the side canyons of Charyn river. This is completed the ensemble of “palaces”, “towers” and ”minarets” formed by Pliocene deposits of red color, due to which this place is also called the Red Canyon. The canyon has a length of about 1.5 kilometers and a depth of 150 meters.

After a hearty breakfast in the morning we will go to the picturesque Lower Kolsai lake - the most accessible one. The lake is located at an altitude of 1818 m. The next place you will visit is Kaindy Lake. An incredible scenery that you see above the water are the trunks of centenary spruce trees. And under the surface of the water, branches and needles of spruce trees were preserved in their original form due to the low temperature of the lake's water. Tourists from all over the world come here to enjoy the unbelievable beauty of this place.
