Review

The Assy plateau goes east along the Assy river. The Assy-Turgen astrophysical observatory has been erected on the upper platform of the high-mountain plateau, where one of the world's largest telescopes is installed. The Assy-Turgen observatory was built by the Astrophysical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Kazakh SSR. The construction of the observatory began in 1975. Already in 1981, constant observations were started on the meter Zeiss. In 2009, the observatory received its modern name "Assy". Today "Assy" is the only observatory in the Republic of Kazakhstan with an ideal astroclimate. In the summer, the Assy plateau acquires fabulous shades and a riot of colors, since a variety of plants grow on its territory, which bloom right on the stones. Here you can find a huge number of amazing landscapes: flowers, bizarre trees, picturesque hills, stones covered with moss, herds of horses peacefully grazing on the flat areas and rivers with incredibly crystal clear water.
