Beautiful nature of Kazakhstan

Several landscape zones (forest-steppe, steppe, semi-desert, and desert) can be found on the territory of over 1,800 kilometers separating the southern and the northern borders of Kazakhstan.

In the west, the territory of Kazakhstan is bordered by the Caspian Sea, in the east – by the taiga of Altai, in the south – by the highest peaks of Tien Shan Mountains. The western part of Kazakhstan is almost entirely flat, and the eastern – mostly mountainous.

    I come to Kazakhstan for the last 14 years. I love the place as my second home. Place is beautiful either in winter or summer and more important is that locals are hospitable and good characters.
