Kenesary Cave

One of the iconic places of the Burabay National Park is named after Kenesary Khan, Kazakh national hero.

Kenesary Khan was a famous Kazakh ruler, a fighter for independence and justice. He loved to hunt and often spent nights at the foot of the hill, where the cave is located.

The structure of the Kenesary Cave resembles a yurt (the national dwelling of nomadic people) with its traditional shanyrak (the main element of the yurt, a circular opening in the roof), which is represented here by a round hole in the upper part of the cave. The path to the cave is paved with stone steps. The cave overlooks Auliekol Lake (Holy Lake), its smooth surface reflects mountains around it.

A tour to Kenesary Cave will introduce you to the history of this place and the life of this great man, helping you to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of that time.
