All Inclusive Altyn-Emel-AkTau-KatuTau-Sand Dune|2 Days
You will enjoy beautiful and diverse views of the largest Kazakhstan Natural reserve - Altyn-Emel, stroll through the Chalk mountains of Ak Tau and listen to the song Singing Dunes (song) - a unique phenomenon of nature that has many related legends. In these beautiful places, the Great Khan the conqueror, the founder of the Mongol Empire, Genghis Khan, stayed with his army.
Singing Dune (barkhan), reaching a h of 120 meters and a length of about 3 km, is a few kilometers from the Ili River between the Big and Small Kalkan mountains. This sandy mountain consists of the smallest pure sand, which, with the gusts of wind, begins to "sing", and its sound resembles the sounds of an organ. Before the beginning of sandstorms the barkhan produces a sound similar to a drumbeat. From the top of the barkhan a grand panorama of the surrounding countryside opens. In the south, there is a thin strip of the Ili River, the purple mountains of Sogety and Boguty, beyond which the ridges of Ketmen look out over the white peaks. At their foot stretches a foothill valley, riddled with thin strips of dry channels of rainwater. If the weather is dry and windy, then the barkhan will "sing" to you his song, which is spread over several kilometers ...
The Ak Tau Mountains (White Mountains) are a world famous paleontological deposit located in the natural park of Altyn-Emel. In the layers of Paleogene lacustrine sediments, well-preserved remains of ancient animals are found whose age is estimated at 25-30 million years. Among the finds are the remains of giant rhinoceroses, crocodiles and turtles. The mountains of Ak Tau represent an enchanting spectacle of the variety of shapes and shades. In the mountains of KatuTau (Harsh mountains), there are several extinct volcanoes, where the most original forms of volcanic formations (frozen lava) have been preserved. There are also diverse outcrops and coloring (yellow, red, violet, etc.) rock outcrops and variegated clays that give a unique look to the landscape of the mountains. The mountains of KatuTau are the most waterless, steep and gloomy, characterized by steep slopes and numerous gorges. There is the largest number of argali and mountain goats.
