Skazka Canyon

Issyk-kul Region, Kyrgyzstan

The Skazka canyon is a place unlike any other place in Kyrgyzstan. It lies hidden from view behind the rolling hills next to the road along the Southern shore of lake Issyk kul. Nothing suggests the strange world of geological rock formations and rich colours that is just a short 2 kilometer hike from the main road.

It’s a magical landscape and therefore skazka canyon is also known as fairytale canyon. The red, brown and yellow rocks contrast with the deep blue colours of lake Issyk kul that you can see if you climb high enough.

It is one of the most beautiful places along the southern road from Bishkek to Karakol.
