Moiyntogay tract - information for tourists.
The tract is a desert area with many hills and depressions. The Charyn River flows along the bottom of the tract, so we can look down and look at the river itself. It is dangerous to go down to the river, so it is best to observe the river from a hill. There are several panoramic points from where a view of the Moiyntogay tract and the Charyn River opens, the scale of these places is amazing. Green trees grow along the river, which gives the river a magical look; in spring, the river is sometimes not even visible from flowering trees. Further, the river leaves the canyon and flows through the Ili valley. The Kurtogay tract is also located here, which is, as it were, higher and precedes the Moiyntogay tract. To get to the grandiose canyon on the Charyn River, it is necessary to move along the technological, old, dirt road along the power line, which crosses the Almaty-Zharkent highway 16 kilometers before the Chundzhinsky bridge.
