  • World cultural heritage "in the archaeological landscape of tamgaly rock paintings of" visited on a tour. From Almaty in the bus three hours, pretty far. Gattagata had no problems in the first hour the main highway is paved once after 2 hours is what the road, swinging terrible speed curses, was tough. To rock up and down, to go after the arrived arrived at the site from the midst of the plain, rock paintings of the walk 15 minutes or more, when you get tired walking home and also honest. Thought rock painting itself is reasonably good, but spent much of the time and effort to go so far, that is the impression.

It is very important that when you podedite to the set, you'll see the House-Office labeled Tamgaly, which closed long ago, do not worry and go ahead in a straight line for about 4 km until you see the fenced parking for cars.
