TOUR SIGHTS

 

On the 1st day of the tour you will head towards the Tamgaly-Tas tract. Tamgaly-Tas in translation from the Kazakh language means "written rocks". These are the oldest drawings of BC, images in the Scythian-Saka “animal style” and a huge image of the Buddha, as well as dozens of Tibetan Buddhist inscriptions. The Tamgaly-Tas Monument is recognized as a monument to the historical heritage of the Kazakh people.

Then, you will go to one of the largest National Parks of Kazakhstan, with an area of 3076 sq.km. called Altyn Emel, which means the Golden Saddle. The territory of the park includes mountain, sand-desert, gravel-clay-desert landscape complexes. In 2017, the Altyn-Emel National Park was awarded the international status of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve as a model of a green, socially oriented economy of the region.

After 50 km of off-road of the National Park, you will find yourself at the Singing Dune. The Singing Dune - a sandy mountain 3 km long and 150 m high. The phenomenon of nature, famous for the fact that in dry weather the sands of the dune emit a sound from a faint squeak to organ melody and even a roar. An enormous sandy mountain grew here as a result of blowing sand from the shores of Ili river. The Singing Dune does not move across the plain, despite the fluctuation of sand and strong winds, but has remained in place for several millennia. During the tour, you will hear interesting legends that are enveloped in the mysterious Singing Dune. And from its top, you will see an amazing panorama of the picturesque Ili river valley and surrounding Kalkan rocky mountains.

On the 2nd day of the tour, you will visit one of the most interesting and spectacular sites in the National Park - the Geological Museum under the sky, lime mountains of Aktau. In Kazakh, this means the White Mountains. Mountains seem white only from afar. On the slopes of the mountains you can find multi-colored clay rocks of red, white, yellow, filled with crystals of calcite and selenite. When you are there everything around seems surreal.
