Review

The Charyn Canyon is one of the most unique objects of nature, where over the millennia, under the influence of the weathering of sedimentary rocks, the original form of the relief took the shape of isolated rocks, columns and towers.
Hot springs are thermal waters that emerge from the ground under the influence of active mountain building and volcanic activity. Most of the hot springs are concentrated in the village of Chundzha. Here you will find many wellness centers and recreation areas where you can stay for a couple of days. Before going to the sources, you should consult your doctor.
Issyk (another name of the lake - Esik, which means "door" in Kazakh) is a picturesque, high-mountainous lake surrounded by unusually beautiful nature of dense forests and wide flower fields. The lake is located at an altitude of 1760 meters above sea level, in the Issyk gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau, about 70 km east of Almaty.
