Konorchek canyons

It is an amazing place that looks like the Grand Canyon in North America. It is possible to get to the Konorchek Canyons only through the labyrinths of rocks along the bed of a dried up river. The length of the hiking route is about 9 kilometers. These canyons are also called the Aeolian Castles.

Rocky mountains of red sandstone are stretching for miles.

The most striking attraction of the canyons is an extinct volcano, age of which is estimated at 2.5 - 3 million years.

The unusual landscape

Some mountains here have their own names: Grand Canyon, Bobsleigh Canyon and Castle Rock - 300 meters high with high jagged turrets on the top. From afar, the tops of the canyons resemble ruins of an ancient city.
