Skazka canyon

Skazka (Fairy Tale) Canyon is a clay canyon with bizarre weathering sites and colored clay.

Mountains made of multi-colored clays, minerals and rocks take unusual forms under the influence of winds and the sun: the mountain can turn into a castle or an ancient animal; the wind can give it the silhouette of a forest or an intricate geometric figure.

Some of these “natural sculptures” already have their own names, the most popular is “Chinese Wall”.
