Charyn Canyon, although completely unknown in the west, is probably the biggest attraction of Almaty region of Kazakhstan. The canyon is located where two huge climate zones clash - between the barren Altyn Emel desert and the massive, lush green Tien Shan mountain range. From the red rocky cliffs of the canyon, you can spot the snow-covered peaks in the distance. An exciting place to visit!
