Easy hike through a very narrow canyon. It was crowded, but worth the visit. Canyon is prone to flash floods so beware! Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet and dirty.

All the surroundings are amazingly impressive with the geological curiosity (red hills, cliffs and canyons). It is not worth buying a ticket to visit the official site as far as it is forbidden to enter the canyon ( if correctly understood...)

Visited in mid June 2017 - huge and magnificent - like walking back in time. The curve of the formation is interesting. Easy walk though some part is wet. Not crowded when we reach around 1030 am. Highly recommended place in Kuche.

It is a must see. The canyon is very narrow in most spots with very steep walls. It has several side canyons, and with picture taking takes about 2 to 2 1/2 hours to go through. Unless you just go straight through. Areas have been...More

The weather was very dusty, as I understand is most of the time, however inside the site it was clear. Well worth the efforts to stop by if you around. Plan for a good two three hours of easy and enjoyable walk with lots of...More
