  • Interesting places. Fantastic landscapes. Seen the oldest (say 700 years) Yiwu is something in September, not so hot. Ride with an overnight stay.

  • More than a hundred kilometers from Almaty Or River is a fantastic Altyn-Emel nature reserve. Go there from Almaty and Kapchagai through Sary-ozek. Then get a pass on the Board of the reserve, and under the leadership of the Rangers can go on. Naturally, you need to have transport because the reserve territory is large enough. The area around the desert. In the summer there is hot and cold in the winter. The ideal time to visit is may, when the desert comes alive. And, of course, need to rely on a couple of nights. Otherwise there is no reason to go. So in advance need to stock up on everything you need, first of all, water. The most interesting place of the reserve-the singing dune. It's a pretty long (several kilometers long and a hundred with superfluous metres tall) ridge of the purest sand. The dune climb. The impression is stunning. The sand is flowing like water. And the times he really sings. Hear absolutely indescribable buzz. And pull on the dunes down-something unimaginable. In addition to the dune, almost not conceding him fantastic canyons. There are also amazing hills whimsical coloring resembling the Egyptian pyramids. And canyons red and grey colours form a straight Taki Martian landscape. And the best way to spend the night on the Bank of the River, or. If you stock up on firewood, you can sit out in the evening around the campfire. It is a fiction.
