Bicycle tours will be held within the territory of the Ili-Alatau National Park. You will visit the Charyn Canyon which is about 250 km long, the Kaindy Lake and the Kolsai Lake. Throughout the journey you will be accompanied by an experienced guide. If the tour becomes too strenuous, you will be provided with transportation to complete the journey.

Charyn Canyon is a mysterious and amazing place, lost among the steppes. It is a natural monument, built of sedimentary rocks, whose age is estimated to be 12 million years old. It is difficult to imagine how many thousands of years it took nature to create such a thing of beauty. The landscapes here are truly breath taking.

At sunset, when the sun goes beyond the horizon, the canyon Charyn is painted in scarlet, pink and orange colors. All around there is silence but far below you can hear how violently the streams of the Charyn river beat against its steep cliffs. This spectacle will arouse your spirit.

Within the boundaries of the park there are a large number of rare and endangered animals. The national park is a welcoming and pleasant place for visitors to Kazakhstan.

Lake Kaindy is a truly amazing example of God’s creation. It is located among a huge coniferous forest at an altitude of more than 2000 thousand meters above sea level. Over time glacieral waters flooded the gorge leaving behind a grand masterpiece. The highlight of Kaindy Lake’s beauty is the coniferous trees, which were overtaken by the flood, but not destroyed. The tops of the pine trees rise above the waters surface creating a beautifully artistic landscape.

Lake Kolsay is hidden deep in the mountains like a jade treasure. There are no words to describe it. It lies as if in a bowl, surrounded on all sides by mountain ranges. Under the rays of the scorching mountain sun, the lake acquires a bright blue or blue-green color. It all depends the angle from which you look upon it.

You will be provided with everything necessary for the tour, from an experienced guide, and even a doctor, if it were necessary. Our bike tour will invoke in you many new emotions and give you memories that will last a life time.
