Departure Chon Kemin toward Konorchek canyon which is located on 125 km from the city of Bishkek along the Bishkek-Issyk-Kul highway in the Boom gorge.
Konorchek canyons consist of red Paleogene sandstone. They resemble the ruins of ancient cities, castles, modern skyscrapers. The length of Konorchek canyons is 200 km, so it is not possible to inspect them all in one. Canyons have such romantic names as "Skyscraper", "Bobsleigh", "Great Canyon". Their height reaches 400-500 meters, they formed several million years under the influence of water and wind, forming gradually a plateau into giant stone columns. An interesting sight of the canyon is the "dry waterfall", which is the remains of a waterfall that flowed here many years ago. If you believe in local folklore, it emits a "black tear" every year.
After canyons you will go to Burana Tower.
