Picturesque Cliffs of Boszhira

Boszhira, a mountain range consisting of a variety of chalk cliffs, is located in the western part of the Ustyurt plateau on the Mangyshlak peninsula in the Mangystau region.

Boszhira, the former bottom of the sea, occupies a very large area and consists of cliffs of various bizarre forms, which appeared as a result of erosion. It takes more than one day to explore it. Boszhira on Google Maps. Photos by: Vladimir Mulder.
