StartingKonorchek Canyons

Konorchek canyons occupy the eastern part of the Kyrgyz Ala-Too, filling a vast territory. Dry, devoid of any vegetation, red from the oxidation of mineral particles, canyons seem to be a cluster of fantastic half-ruined castles, ancient temples, modern skyscrapers, columns and spiers. The unusual forms of these structures of nature gave rise to equally strange names: Skala Castle is an imposing array with a flat top 300 meters high, topped with jagged turrets; Bobsled Canyon, Grand Canyon, and others. Water filling cracks during frequent summer thunderstorms has turned the slopes of the surrounding hills into a maze of pointed ridges, low mesas, rounded domes, pyramids and columns. If viewed from afar, this landscape most resembles the ruins of a mysterious ancient city spread out on a wide field.


The canyons cut by crevasses reveal a fascinating geological chronicle of past eras. Konorchek’s canyons were created by erosion over several million years. Where the movements of the earth’s crust opened up cracks and rifts, the rains and winds destroyed the sandstone lying under them, decorating the landscape with fancy columns. So, step by step, time, water and wind created the magnificent fairytale city of Konorchek.

EndingKonorchek - Bishkek

The unique beauty of Kanorchek canyons is in majestic rocks, dry and clear air and long shadows falling from nature-created sculptures, lit by the Tian-Shan sunset sun. wriggling between the walls of the canyons, form massive rock monoliths that play in the sun with shades of crimson, tan and orange. At the rise of Konorchek’s tower and dome light up red and purple colors that ha chickpeas and shimmer at sunset, absorbing the golden hues of passing time.

Tour Description

The amazing landscapes of Konorchek canyons resemble the Great Canyon, but at the same time, they carry a significant particle of the unique nature of Kyrgyzstan.

This fabulous place is located 125 km from the capital, in the Boom gorge.

You can go to the Canyons only through the maze of rocks along the bed of a dried up river.

Rocky columns of red sandstone stretch for miles.
