Charyn National Park

Millions of years ago there used to be erupting volcanoes here. The new landscapes were formed by heated magma that burst out from craters. Experts say that red sediment rocks, a mixture of soil and carbonate, were formed in the bed of the river Charyn in the neogene period when dinosaurs had already disappeared. Water and wind do their job of forming the landscape features slowly but surely constantly shaping mountains and hills like a sculptor.
