The singing dune on the territory of the nature protection complex is one of the most amazing natural phenomena. A huge number of legends and tales are connected with it. For a long time, scientists could not understand this phenomenon. And in the Middle Ages, people who heard the singing of the sands thought that it was the evil spirits of the desert shouting. After that, it was assumed that when the air in the sand moved, it came out of the sand and made such a sound. As it turned out later, the secret was hidden in the fact that it was not ordinary sand, but how unique quartzite-like, shiny and electrifying sand, which, when rubbed, makes such a wonderful sound.
This impressive sand mountain, which was created by the wind from the Ili sand, between two rocky hills of the small and large shield, attracted tourists back in Soviet times. It wasn't easy to get here in those years. But today it is a very popular tourist attraction and in order to enjoy the amazingly beautiful nature, you do not need a lot of time and large expenses, it is enough to purchase a tour to the singing dune from the Tour4you travel company.

From the height there is a beautiful view of the surrounding area. In the south, you can see a narrow strip of the river and the purple mountains of Sogety and Boguta, behind which the white tops of the Ketmen ridge are hidden.
