    Soft rocks of different shades are very flexible to the action of external forces. After the next rain, the relief of the Fairytale can really change noticeably
    And shades of colors on the slopes of the canyon can change dramatically and with strong gusts of wind. Moreover, staying in the Fairytale with complete calm and clear skies from morning till night, the observer every hour will discover new details of the landscape. They will be differently illuminated by the movement of the sun in the sky and the movement of shadows on the ground.
    Walking along this gorge during the rest on Issyk-Kul brings not only aesthetic pleasure, but also unity with nature. With care, you take every step so as not to disrupt the creation of the Creator. These blocks impress with their uniqueness and grandeur.
