The Canyon is extremely picturesque and very diverse in geological and geomorphologic means. Wind and water have created this beautiful "Valley of Castles". The length of the Valley is more than 2 km, and the width is 20-80 meters. Throughout the duration of the walking route you are surrounded by fanciful towers, composed of sedimentary rocks. For millions of years nature has been creating this architecture, carefully and slowly, and raised magnificent castles. You can spend hours wandering past the strange towers, pillars and the marvel exuberant imagination of nature! The Fantastic Valley of Castles in Charyn Canyon opens up a world of amazing cliffs, and towers made of red sandstone, aged 10-12 million years old.
