Kazakhstanians compare the Charyn canyon with the Grand Canyon in the United States. And although the Charyn canyon is smaller in size to the Grand Canyon, but not inferior with its beauty and grandeur - fans of hiking and wildlife from all over the world come here.

The Charyn Canyon is located 200 kilometers away from Almaty, near the border with China, on the territory of the Charyn National Natural Park. The canyon stretches for 154 kilometers along the Charyn River and is formed from sedimentary rocks which are 12 million years old.

The lake is located in the mountains of the Ili Alatau at an altitude of 2500 meters above sea level and, like the overwhelming majority of the lakes of Tien Shan, appeared because of the earthquakes. In the 60s of the last century, a cascade of hydroelectric power plants was built on the Big Almaty Lake, water intakes were installed, and now the lake supplies Almaty with fresh water. Big Almaty Lake is surrounded by mountain peaks and glaciers from all sides. This is quite a popular place of rest of Almaty residents and foreigners.

On the right bank of the Ili River, in the Altyn-Emel National Park, there is a natural phenomenon - the Singing Dune. In dry weather, you can hear the melodious sounds from the sand dunes that resemble organ playing.

Legend says that these are the melodies of spirits of the desert, but scientists have other opinion.

Observations showed that the greater the moving mass of sand, the louder the sand dune sounds — slide down from the dunes, and the sound will become more expressive.

The sand dune was formed as a result of blowing sand from the shoals of the Ili River.

Singing sand dunes are also found in only few places in the world: the city of Tarfaya (Morocco), in the Namib Desert (Africa), in Wales (England), near the Dunhun Oasis (China) and in the Nevada Desert (USA).

On the excursion we will walk along the very crest of the dune and take a ride from the dune, making it sing louder!

One of the highlights of my trip to Almaty was Charyn canyon organized by Skyway. Professional guide, comfortable vehicle, good lunch. I simply loved the walk in the canyon admiring the rock formation. The river is refreshing at the end.
