Tamgaly Tas on the Ili River


Description of the tour.

In the famous Tamgaly-Tas tract on a huge rock carved Buddha images. This place is known by the people as Writed Rocks. Legend has it that one of the Buddhist missions in the XVI century deepened in Semirechye. When they stopped on the bank of Or, an earthquake occurred, and a huge piece of stone fell to the ground. Buddhist servants took this as a sign that they should return to India. On the breakaway part of the rock, they cut out three Buddha images. Several other images of this God can be found on nearby rocks. By the way, this place is extremely popular among climbers.
