The Assy Plateau

Kazakhstan is a country offering incredible natural beauty, from high peaks and glaciers several thousand meters high, to endless steppes and fascinating canyons. And one of its most beautiful places is the Assy Plateau, which from time immemorial has been a blessed place for summer pasture, a hub of caravan routes from Europe and Central Asia to China and India.
It stretches to the east along the river Assi. Its length is about 40 km from east to west, and the average width is about 7km. On the north side it is blocked by the Karach and Bukaydyntau ranges, and on the south side by the Sarytau Mountains.
The ancient tribes of the Saks and Usuns lived here and you can see their priceless historical heritage - mounds and rock carvings that have been preserved since the Early Iron Age and are considered one of the high-mountain collections of petroglyphs.

Planetary Observatory

At the top of the plain is the astrophysical observatory of Assi-Turgen. It has one of the largest telescopes in the world. The observatory was built in 1975. In 2009, the observatory received its modern name "ASSI". Today it is the only astrophysical observatory in Kazakhstan with an impeccable astroclimate.
