11. The route: Turgen falls (with landing) - Lake Kolsay (without landing) - the Charyn canyon (with landing) - singing barkhans (with landing)

Natural boundary Turgen in vicinities of Almaty is the most beautiful corner of the protogenic nature at bottom of Zailij Ala Tau ridges. It is well-known for the picturesque falls, crystal water of the mountain rivers and small Lakes. The Kolsay Lakes located at the height of 1000, 2250 and 2700 metres above sea level become the second point of this route. Surrounded with rocks and woods, mountain gorges and the Alpine meadows, these Lakes bewitch with the virgin beauty.

Landing at the Charynsky canyon will give you the unique possibility to admire creation of the mother-nature. The nature has presented to us unique forms of the fantastic Charyn "castles" created by water, wind erosion and time. Tourists can tickle nerves by speed racing down Charyn on catamarans or on an attraction "Tarzan". In the evenings it is possible to have a rest in a Scythian bath on the bank of the river. Among nearby natural sights - the cemetery of the hardened trees, the Snake valley and a relic ashen grove.

Your second landing will be already near the singing barkhan. By opinion of many people, this is the most mystical place in Almaty area. Nobody knows, how this sandy colossus appeared on a joint of Big Kalkan mountain formations and for whom he sings the songs. It is located on the right coast of the largest river Ili and is a unique sight of Altin-Emel nature reserve. Strolling on a barkhan ridge, it is possible to hear its singing. Sand under your feet starts to slide and hoot, reminding either a landing plane or a river beacon siren.
