    Once upon a time I was going to see the King's mounds. "Their nickname for the people, that means 5 mounds, but experts say they should be Phesshatyr and translate accordingly Saints mounds. Ctoilo so many years wanting to get here and find yourself here. The road is long, dusty, but forget about it as soon as the distance shown ancient Saki mounds. Incidentally, in recent years, built the largest incision mound, now you can explore what they look like inside. True underground labyrinths no rassmotrish may later come up with, how do we show them. As with all sorts of places of worship "is multifunctional. Here and buried, and treated, and open yourself to something unknown, and ... I was on 1.5 hours remaining, barrows 1:00 pm took the path, but they left a deep mark that I hear myself-and it will last and last.

    an incredibly beautiful place especially the top of Aktau and the singing dune. Accommodation hotel takes care of altyn emel in Basszi, help arrange transport. The dunes ok 35 km, to Aktau over 50 km. In the absence of places in hotel space in the guards. I recommend using szlabanie to sand dunes. Nonetheless, people, good food.

    Beautiful National Park. Have discovered on site that there are a few huts where you can sleep near the torrent, too bad if we had known, we would have liked to sleep there to enjoy the scenery and not make just a round trip. Landscapes between the Grand Canyon well on smaller scale and a hint of Brice Canyon.

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
