Kent Mountains – a beautiful place in Central Kazakhstan

Central Kazakhstan, the cradle of ancient nomadic civilizations, consists of vast steppes and rocky oases, filled with the breath of pine needles.

Among the latter, we should mention Kent Mountains located in the Karaganda region, one of the oldest mountain ranges of the world. Photos by: Alexandr Kuznetsov.
