Outfitter KZ Company is pleased to present a two-day tour to the National Park "Altyn-Emel". The tour is available in a real safari trip by jeeps.
Altyn-Emel is a National preserve, located in the valley of the Ili River. The park was founded on April 10, 1996 in order to preserve the natural complex, historical, cultural and archaeological sites, rare and endangered species of plants and animals. The total area of the park is 520 thousand hectares.
We offer you to appreciate the beauty of the natural park in the first Outfitter KZ 3D-tour, kindly prepared by Eugene Volkov.
3D tour to Singing Dune
There are natural and historical sites of importance In the park: the most famous of them is a unique natural phenomenon called Singing Dunes. It is 1.5 km long and 120 m high. The dune has an unusual half-moon shape.
When there is a strong wind, driving the sands, the feeling is that as if the plane takes off. There is a tangible buzz and the dune vibrates! Until now, this phenomenon remains a mystery of nature.
You can also enjoy the natural scenery of Aktau mountains, which not without a reason are called "lunar" because of their unusual color. Aktau are chalk mountains that are more than 400 million years of age. Mountains are basically white, but there are also blue and pink, red and green slopes. Only from a bird's-eye view or by detailed tracking you can see the extraordinary beauty of the place.

The National Park Altyn-Emel is not only the largest and most famous nature reserve in Kazakhstan, but also a valuable and meaningful legacy in the culture of Kazakhs. Therefore in 2002 Kazakhstan has nominated Altyn-Emel as a candidate for the UNESCO World Heritage List.
