Picturesque Scenery of Aktolagay

Aktolagay, a snow-white mountain range almost 50 km long and about 10 km wide, is located in the southwest of the Aktobe region. The unusual, almost unparalleled landscape of the plateau makes it unique and attracts people interested in geotourism and auto-travelers.

In the distant past, it was the seabed. Here you can find fossilized remains of mollusks, bones and teeth of sharks and other living creatures that once inhabited the ancient sea. Aktolagay on Google Maps. Photos by: Natalya Kozlovskaya.

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
