Very few people visit this place, so beautiful landscapes, untouched by human activities, are preserved here.
Atapkan Pass is located in Jungar-Alatau National Park, overlooking the picturesque view of the Tentek River Valley and the gorge of the same name. This place is known for its biological diversity: here you can see bears, ibexes, deer and other wild animals. The flora includes pines and spruce trees, as well as unique wild fruit trees. Due to its isolation, wild unspoilt nature is preserved here.
In the upper reaches of the Atapkan River at an altitude of 2500 m (about 8000 ft) there is a small lake. Slightly lower (1650-2450 m - 5500-7500 ft) a spruce forest spread out across the scenic gorge.
