The Ketmen Pass
The Ketmen Mountains are seldom visited by tourists. That is why they have preserved their pristine nature.
The Ketmen Mountains are located in the Almaty Region, in the western Tian Shan. Alpine vegetation grows around. There are several hard-to-reach gorges. Many small rivers with crystal-clear water turn into scenic waterfalls. At an altitude of 3300m (11000 ft), there is a coal deposit, which functioned before the World War II. The weather in the Ketmen Mountains changes rapidly: from freezing cold to oppressive heat. In the foothills trees are blooming, while snow falls in the highlands even in summer.
