How many Canyons in the world? There are more then 300.
This summer Teddy had an opportunity to enjoy one of them – Charyn Canyon. Being the mystery creature of nature, this canyon left a lasting impression with its grand splendor and beauty. Charyn Canyon is about 12 million years old and surprised us with its vertical cliffs, reminding the ancient castles, created by wind, sun and rain.
We had opportunity to walk through the maze of the Castles Valley, which is the most beautiful part of the canyon. All along the valley we were surrounded by towers of fantastical forms build of sedimentary.
The length of the valley is more than two kilometers and we spent few hours walking in this fairy land, astonished by the inventiveness of nature. During the hike Teddy played with small rocks, tossing them here and there.
The weather in those days was very hot - around +40C and without wind in the canyon it could be unbearable to be there. We were lucky that the day we went there it was overcast and evening rain(only one day during whole July).
When we got Charyn River we had a picnic there and spent some time fishing. We caught and released few trout. On the way back Teddy was very exhausted so we carried him all way back to the car. Teddy was impressed with extraordinary scenery of an amazing natural miracle and loves to watch video of that trip from time to time. Which canyon will be next to explore?
