Review

Altyn-Emel is a national natural park located in the valley of the Ili river on the territory of Kazakhstan. On the territory of the park with a total area of ​​520 thousand hectares, you can find various landscapes: mountainous, sandy-desert, gravelly, desert.
On the territory of the park there are many unique natural and historical objects of great importance: the most famous of them is a unique natural phenomenon - the Singing Dune dune, 1.5 km long and up to 120 m high.The dune has the shape of a crescent, which makes its beauty unique. When the wind blows from the west, scattering the sands, it feels like an organ is playing in the heart of the desert. Until now, this phenomenon remains a mystery of nature, but scientists suggest that in dry hot weather, the sand is electrified with the help of friction and creates a certain sound vibration. No one who has ever heard the singing of the dune will never forget this phenomenon.
Tourists can also enjoy the magnificent natural landscapes of the Aktau mountains, which are not without reason called "lunar" because of their unusual coloring. Aktau is a chalk mountain over 400 million years old, mostly white, but there are also blue and pink, red and green slopes that give the Aktau mountains a unique alien beauty. The Katutau Mountains stretch from southwest to northeast in the form of a narrow hilly ridge with plateau-like peaks. The slopes are dissected by many waterless gorges and chinks.
