River Aksu canyon

Kanon Aksu is one of the most picturesque places of reserve Aksu-Zhabagly, the oldest reserve of Kazakhstan based in 1926 in mountains of Western Tjan-Shanja. On the sizes Aksu is considered one of the greatest and deep canyons in Central Asia (its depth fluctuates from 300 to 500 meters, the distance between the upper edges makes only 800 meters, and extent – more than 30 kilometers). Descent in a canyon is combined enough, and steep river banks on many sites do it basically impassable. Rocks well warmed up by the sun and the mountain river providing humidity of air, create a microclimate of a natural greenhouse in a canyon; and besides the plants meeting in other territory of reserve, in a canyon it is possible to see also horsetails, ferns, relic plants of bygone epoch.
