Day 2. Altyn-Emel’ and return to Almaty city

Breakfast, a trip to the Singing Barkhan.

Not far from the Ili river, between the mountain range, there is the Singing Barkhan rising to a height of 120 meters. It is a mountain of fine sand, which “sings” when the wind blows, resembling the sounds of a pipe organ. If a sand storm is approaching, the barkhan sounds like a beating of a drum.

This place shows an amazing view of the surroundings. In the south, there is the flowing Ili River, the mountains of Boguty and Sogety, and farther south there is the Ketmen’ range. In the west, there is the Bol’shoj (Great) Kalkan, in the east – the Malyj (Small) Kalkan. If you look to the north, you can see the Dzhungarian Alatau and numerous mountain peaks. The green valley stretches below.

At 12:00, transfer to the hotel. A tour to the natural landmarks of Aktau and Katutau.

Aktau (the White Mountains) is a paleontological landmark, here the remains of animals have been found, whose age is about 30 million years.

In the Mountains of Katutau you can see extinguished volcanoes with arrays of hardened lava. Rocks different in color and relief look unusual, creating a unique view of these places. There are steep rocks and a lot of quaint gorges, sometimes you can meet argali.

At 18:00 departure to Almaty city, arrival at about 22:00.
