Zhongar-Alatau State National Natural Park is one of the most colorful places in Almaty region, whose untouched beauty is able to fascinate any visitor. The structure of the institution engaged in a nature reserve includes three branches: Sarkansky, Lepsinsky and Alakolsky. The park is located on the slope of the Zhetysu Alatau ridge, where there is a significant mountain peak - the peak of Semenov-Tien Shan. The area occupied by the park is more than 356 hectares, and its territory is characterized by an especially mild climate, thanks to which Zhongar-Alatau became a haven for many rare representatives of the animal world listed in the Red Book of Kazakhstan. Much attention is paid to the local flora: apple forests, relict species of trees and shrubs are restored and preserved here.
The natural monument Zhongar-Alatau will help you to get to know the nature of Kazakhstan, get closer to it and just enjoy the surrounding panoramic views.
