The Charyn canyon is located in National park Charyn in 215 kilometers to the East from Almaty and approximately in 3 hours’ journey. The canyon has been described as the younger brother of the Great Canyon. It doesn’t belittle obvious gloss of the canyon. The prospect of a drama erosion, made the river Charyn below and elements creates a drama and impressive landscape.
Canyon about 150 km long, places to 300 meters in depth.
Particular interest represents the two-kilometer site under the name Valley of Locks consisting of the columns and rocks forming human structures.
Canyon history Charyn is that it was formed about 3 million years ago when the earth around a canyon has begun to grow. Very big lake existed around the top part of a canyon, and it has begun to be devastated. During the subsequent millions of years the canyon has been created on the river Charyn. About 2 million years ago the strong earthquake has broken a river stream, having blocked it a landslide. A part of a canyon then has suffered from the elements forming rocky sculptures. The river Charyn flows in the lower part of a canyon, forming the following Grand Canyon.
