Red mountains of Boguty, martian landscape |Day tour

Enjoy an exciting day-trip in Boguty mountains!

Fantastic and extraordinarily red mountains of Boguty are two massifs - Ulken Boguty and Bala Boguty, located east of the city of Almaty. These mountains are the foothills of the mountain system of the Trans-Ili Alatau and stretch between the two Charyn and Chilik rivers. The unusualness of these mountains is also in the fact that they do not need to be climbed, on the contrary, they must be descended along the road. And only descended into the steppe, you can get to the mountains. In these places in the distant past there was an active volcano. This is indicated by the numerous lumps of petrified volcanic ash. A real basalt, which is a volcanic product. But, according to geologists 250 million years ago, volcanic activity on this territory stopped. Still here a long time ago there was a large lake, traces of which in the form of sedimentary rocks occur literally at every step.

Boguty allow you to feel your presence on another planet.

Highlights of the tour:  Barbecue in open air, walk inside the Boguty canyon, hiking in Boguty mountains, visit a road market in Baiseit village.
