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.
