To see this wild land, it is necessary to wind a considerable number of kilometers along the roads of Almaty region and mountain roads. However, it is worth it. Wide mountain valleys, huge raging rivers, high waterfalls, large lakes and wildlife await you here. During the trip we will visit 2 mountain valleys of the Dzungarian Alatau, in which the rivers Kora and Agynykats flow. The first is the Burkhan-Bulak waterfall. The nature of the Kora river valley is similar to the mountains of Almaty – Tien Shan. Lake Zhasylkol is located in the second valley of the river Agynykaty. And its nature is closer to the mountains of Altai.
This tour will be interesting for those who want to enjoy the wildlife and a small number of people. Due to the very difficult road, this mountainous off-road, few people get here. Only experienced drivers can get to these places. Nature will certainly reward these travelers with incredible landscapes. In these parts, she practically remained untouched.
