Late Autumn in the Southeast of Kazakhstan

The southeastern part of Kazakhstan, a vast area known as Semirechye (Zhetysu), belongs to the few regions of Kazakhstan with rich bioresources.

Seven large rivers flow into Lake Balkhash – hence the name to the region. The longest river is the Ili, which brings to Lake Balkhash about 70% of all incoming water. Semirechye on Google Maps. Photos by: Grigory Bedenko.

Lakes in the delta of the Ili River sometimes have a very bizarre shape.

In the basin of the Ili River there are several national parks: the Charyn Park, the Altyn-Emel, as well as the Ile-Alatau National Park and the Kolsai Lakes Park located in the Northern Tien Shan.

This is one of the most beautiful places of Asia with an absolutely fantastic variety of landscapes and climatic zones.
