After breakfast departure toward Konorchek canyon which located in a distance of about 45 km from Chon-Kemin along the Bishkek-Issyk-Kul highway in the Boom gorge.

Konorchek canyons consist of red paleogene sandstone. They resemble the ruins of ancient cities, castles, modern skyscrapers. The length of Konorchek canyons is about 200 km, so it is not possible to inspect them all at once. Canyons have such romantic names as "Skyscraper", "Bobsleigh", "Great Canyon". Their height reaches 400-500 meters, they formed several million years under the influence of water and wind, gradually forming a plateau into giant stone columns. An interesting sight of the canyon is the "dry waterfall", which is the remains of a waterfall that flowed here many years ago. If you believe in local folklore, it emits a "black tear" every year.

For lunch you will have lunch boxes to have a picnic in the area.
