The Mountains of Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan mountainsThe mountains of Kazakhstan are a favorite place for rest of the tourists of all over the world. Besides the natural landscapes and rare flora and fauna, the Kazakh Mountains are famous for their alpine spas and sanatoriums as well as for alpinist’s camps with all conditions necessary for extreme rest.

The Kazakh mountains are divided into Alpine and low regions. The low regions include so-called “yellow steppe” or otherwise Sary-Arka which situated in the centre of Kazakhstan. The length of Sary-Arka is 1200 km, its highest point reaches 1565 m. In spite of the fact that Sary-Arka is a steppe there are a good few of mountain peaks. The highest of them are considered Aksorgan (1565m) and Karkarala mountains (1403m). There are small blue lakes with clean water scattered among the yellow sands and mountains of Sary-Arka. The mountain regions of Sary-Arka are often called “small Switzerland”. Since the natural landscapes surprisingly resemble those of Swiss.

In addition, the low regions of Kazakhstan comprise the Mugodjary chine located in the South of the Urals. At the Caspian Sea, there are the Mangystau Mountains with the Karagiye depression at the south, the lowest point of Kazakhstan.

A vast territory of Kazakhstan borders on many regions of Central Asia, that is why it is quite natural that Kazakhstan has one of the world largest highlands Altai and Tien-Shan surrounding it in the south-west and north-west.
