Tour National park Altyn Emel singing dune, mountains Aktau

Алтын Эмель Тур из Алматы рассчитан на два или три дня

Altyn Emel Tour from Almaty is designed for two or three days

Purple Mountain, Singing Dunes, the ancient ocean sediments, an abandoned uranium mine, an oasis in the Blasted Lands, the shadow of the dinosaurs, menhirs of disappeared people - who read the stories of Ivan Efremov, he will understand. Three hundred kilometers north of Almaty between the mountain range, which in different places called Sholak, Degeres, Matai, Altyn-Emel, Koyandy and the valley of the Ili River is a reserve (more correctly: the National Natural Park), Altyn-Emel. The place is notable for several reasons.

Firstly, when I began to die Reserve Barsakelmes in the Aral Sea, here moved a significant portion of wild asses and gazelles who lived there. Here they settled down and even multiplied. Anyway gazelles Now you can meet several times a day.

Secondly, in this area (in the tract Besshatyr) located menhirs - ancient megalithic structures, apparently related to the burial rituals of the peoples who inhabited this place thousands of years ago. Menhirs slightly reminiscent of the famous Stonehenge, the exact purpose of anyone really knows, as well as the appointment of Stonehenge, but they stand for a long time and, I suspect, will survive and our civilization.

In addition, the reserve is located in a geologically interesting places. Part of its territory is a former very bottom of an ancient sea, which by virtue of some wonderful tectonic processes vspuchilis and formed the mountains of Aktau and Katutau. Due to the further erosion of millionletney our attention were the landscapes of "The Martian Chronicles" that an inexperienced person at all seem impossible.
