Assy Plateau -Turgen gorge 2 days tour

Assi Plateau -Turgen gorge 2 days tour

The high-altitude plateau of Assy - Turgen is located at an altitude of 2600 m above sea level, in the valley of the Assy River, 100 km east of Almaty.

Along the river Assy, there are ancient burial mounds and rock carvings. Historians call them one of the most high-density petroglyphs in Kazakhstan.

From antiquity to the present, it is used as a summer pasture for cattle. Here, signs of a person more than 5000 years old (both nomadic and sedentary) were found.

Despite the difficult availability, the plateau is constantly boiling life. In ancient times, there were caravan routes from Europe to China and India. During the formation of Soviet power, the White and Red Army fought. In modern times, the Assy-Turgen Observatory was built.

Part of the territory of the plateau is covered with coniferous forests. In the autumn, you can collect a lot of different berries and mushrooms!

The mountains are insanely beautiful.
