Tours to Charyn canyon.

«A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature»

Henry David Thoreau.

Tours to Charyn canyon from Astana.

The Small canyon is a dry course Bestamak, on the right river bank Charyn. Small the canyon is called not only for the big sizes and extent. The canyon includes all kinds of breeds and architectural forms and images which are in a canyon Charyn.
It is the Charyn canyon in a miniature.  Being the natural course for rain rainfall, the canyon winds in the collapsing breeds and connects to the main canyon of the river Charyn. The main distinctive feature of sculptural forms of the Small canyon is the abundance of various towers and sculptures reminding sculptures of Easter Island.
Having begun on the plain with the small and wide gradually going deep course, the canyon suddenly is narrowed and fails through strong rocky breeds, forming a corridor in an environment of fortifications of the huge sizes put from blocks.
Having escaped on a scope and making the way in life in the sedimentary breeds which remained from the ancient, prehistoric sea, wind and water creating a canyon, created laces and monuments from a stone as result of vnechny opposition of the earth, water and wind.
Having appeared in this canyon, you begin to feel all greatness of terrestrial geological history. Not without reason canyons always cause in the person awe before work of the nature which represent eternity and the movement.
It is possible to get to the Small canyon having turned after the journey (A351) in the village Aksay on the left and on the bad dirt road to move in the northern direction. On forks adhering to the left branches and being guided on not numerous billboards of "The Charyn state national natural park".
