Canyon Fairy Tale, Tosor

#5 of 39 in Parks in Issyk Kul Province
Marvel at rainbow-colored rocks, weirdly and fantastically shaped by the wind over centuries, at Canyon Fairy Tale. Sitting on the southern shores of the huge Lake Issyk-Kul, the canyon features rock formations resembling giant termite hills, with shades of red, yellow, and orange. Set against the backdrop of the snow-capped northern Tian Shan mountains, the canyon provides an amazing landscape for taking memorable photos. Use your imagination and try to see interesting shapes in the rocks, some of which resemble snakes, dragons, hippos, a sleeping giant, a castle, and even the Great Wall of China. The magical effect caused by light falling over the fabulous shapes and cracked rocks make a postcard-like scene to remember. Bring plenty of water for your walk through the isolated canyon. Plan a trip to Tosor easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • I was only there in the off-season. There is nothing but the rocks, but these are fabulously beautiful. There are paths through, but you can also climb the sandstone panoramas as far as you dare. There are no restrictions. On nice days a lot of activity, in summer it gets tight. Not far from the main shave on the south side of Issyk Kol, therefore easy and fast to reach.
