The Skazka canyon is a world on its own and one of the most beautiful attractions on the southern shore of lake Issyk kul. It is small compared to the Charyn Canyon in Kazakhstan, but equally impressive with its colourful red rocks and the deep blue lake behind it. It is not for nothing that the Skazka canyon is also known among travellers as the fairytale canyon.
Skazka canyon is definetly worth a visit. It’s the kind of place where you can’t stop taking pictures even though you know they can’t capture the reality in all its colours. The panoramic views are spectacular, especially as you get higher and get to see lake issyk kul.
