'Our Outfitter KZ team is pleased to offer you a comprehensive three-day city tour along the following route: We start our adventure with a departure from Almaty. Our first stop is at Lake Issyk, where we will make a leisurely 1 km hike to the lake. After that, we head to the charming Turgen Gorge. Once you reach the Bear Falls, get ready for an exciting 4 km round trip hike. Then transfer to the ethnos aul Tumar for accommodation in a yurt and lunch. Spectacular visit to the Asa Plato Observatory and relaxing walk with photo opportunities. Then we return to Tumar village for dinner, free time and rest. The second day begins with breakfast in Almaty, after which we head to the stunning Charyn Canyon. We explore the famous Castle Valley Canyon (Kyzylsay Canyon) descending a 2.5 km trail with photo stops. Having finished our exploration, we will climb back to the car park (2.5 km). If necessary, taxis from the national park are available during the high season, but are not included in the tour price. We will take a break for lunch at the parking lot before continuing our journey to Lunar Canyon (Uzynbulak Canyon) for panoramic views and photo shoot. Then we will head to the unforgettable Stone Shelf to enjoy even more breathtaking scenery, including the panoramic viewpoint ''Napoleon'' (2.5 km) and ''Austrian View'' (2 km). Departing, we will visit the village of Saty by the Kolsai Lakes, enjoy the Black Canyon and finally rest in the guest house with dinner and socializing by the fire before spending the night. The final day begins with breakfast at the guest house. Our path will lead us to Lake Kaindy (15 km on a dirt road), where a 2-kilometer crossing awaits us. During the high season, horse rental is available at the parking lot (not included in the tour price). Explore various locations around the lake, including the shoreline, panoramic viewpoints, and a tributary of the Kaindy River. After that, we will return to the parking lot (2 km), visit the panoramic platform overlooking the valley of the Chilik River and enjoy lunch at the guest house. This is followed by a short walk along the shore of the lower lake Kolsai, and our tour ends with leaving the parking lot by the lake, returning to Almaty (300 km) and arriving back in the city.'
