Skazka/Fairy Tale Canyon - Kyrgyzstan
My 4 month volunteer stint in Karakol draws to a close. The first weekend I made a hike to Kol Tur, a small high altitude lake, a few valleys from here.
And my last weekend, I finally headed out again. 100km west from Karakol, 90 minutes on a marshrutkha, to Skazka/Fairy Tale Canyon. Awesome sandstone rock formations.
The overnight rain had stopped, clouds over the peaks remained threatening and the crowds stayed away. Perfect for a few hours of contemplation.
How to get to Skazka:
Marshrutkhas leave from the South Shore Bus Station in Karakol to Balykchy and Bokonbaevo. Fare to Skazka is about 120c and takes 90minutes. Gps for the turn to the canyon: N 42.1745694, E 77.3526889
