Kazakhstan travel guide

Mountains · Parks · Observation Decks
The world's biggest landlocked country, Kazakhstan boasts a thriving economy resting almost entirely on huge reserves of natural gas and oil. While some travelers find its seemingly endless and largely featureless steppe unappealing, others take a trip to Kazakhstan precisely because of these unspoiled stretches. If you wanted, you could certainly spend your entire vacation in Kazakhstan completely alone, exploring the sprawling, empty horizons. If you want a little company, mingle with the highly urbanized locals in Almaty or Astana, two big cities featuring broad tree-lined avenues, hip cafes, giant malls, and many innovative buildings that seem plucked right out of a science fiction novel.

Nearly 5,000 native Irish speakers reside in the area, concentrated in two large Gaeltachts known as Corca Dhuibhne and Uibh Rathach. Many visitors come to enjoy the rugged beauty of Kerry's coastline, lakes, and mountains. Several picturesque walking routes wind their way through the landscape, giving tourists the chance to engage deeply with its untamed nature.
