          Wonderful trip
          It is very pleasant to walk, the contrast of white snow and the Red Canyon and the blue, crystal clear sky is even more pronounced! The photos are amazing :)

          Great experience with Ecotour Kazakhstan! They professionally organized for us a visit to stunning Charyn Canyon last fall which could offer us a unique break from the surrounding plains. We managed to enjoy the ever-changing colours of the canyon’s red sandstone cliffs which have been carved into intricate shapes over millenia by the Charyn river. On the next stop, they offered us to replace the shifting red-hues of Charyn by deep blues and greens when we were transported to the sunken forest of Kaindy lake . A short horse-ride uncovered an entirely different landscape featuring trees that have been submerged for more than a century. They told us that the unworldly sub-aquatic forest was created after a 1911 earthquake triggered a landslide which formed a natural damn. How interesting!!! More than a hundred years later a remarkable scene remains featuring trunks of underwater trees protruding from the crystal clear lake.This breathtaking body of water is surrounded by what many have called screensaver quality scenery. That trip was worthy every single try!! So, I wish I could write more about Ecotour but I highly recommend to try their services and enjoy the awesomeness of Kazakhstan nature!!!!! Best time to try is Fall, imho...

          Good organized trip
          I was at tour with Ecotour Kazakhstan this summer. Everything went smooth and we have visited a lot of beautiful places. Most of all I liked Uzynbulak canyon and Kairak waterfall, even the road for one side was about 1,5 hours.

          An unforgettable experience
          We booked a 3 day trip to Charyn Canyon and the Tien Shan mountains with Ecotours Kazakhstan with a private guide working with Ecotours Kazakhstan. We really have seen so much of the great Kazakh outdoors, and went on day long hikes in the mountains together. Accomodation in a small rural guest house, transport in a confortable 4WD, tasty breakfast, picnic and dinner included. Our guide Natalya is great company and knows a lot about the area, she really has been everywhere. She is an experienced mountaineer and can organize a wide range of activities. Ecotour Kazakhstan was very helpful in planning and adapted the schedule to our wishes, and made sure everything went smooth. I can recommend Ecotour Kazakhstan to everyone! Will defintively book again when I am in the area.

          Tien-Shan Mountains & Dzhungar Alatau Mountains
          Together with Ekotur I visited two expeditions. These were the best trips in my practice. Everything was done perfectly. I can not say anything bad, only good.
