Bektau Ata Mountain Range
Bektau Ata is an ideal place for hiking, for its alien landscapes offer a magnificent view.
The Bektau Ata Mountain Range is located a few kilometers away from the town of Balkhash. The landscape is diverse: there are both mountains and deep gorges. Some rocks resemble particular figures, for instance, a mushroom, a chest, or a turtle. There are picturesque ponds in rock cavities. Hundreds of plants grow here. This area is also a home for argali, jerboas, turtle doves and other animals. In Bektau Ata the deepest cave in Kazakhstan is located, but it is filled with water, so you cannot go deep into it.
