Stunning views of the limestone plateau Aktolagay

Aktolagay is a limestone plateau located on the border of Atyrau and Aktobe regions; in the past this plateau was the seabed. That is why, now, you can find an abundance of various fossils here – shellfish, corals and other marine life lived millions of years ago.

The plateau impresses travelers with its deserted scenery and amazing white cliffs. Unfortunately, not many people know about this magnificent place. Aktolagay on Google Maps. Photos by Ilia Afanasieff
