Overview
During this tour you will cross c.1800 km, this is one of the most challenging as well as one of the most adventurous tours!

The wondrous region of Mangistau seemingly comes out of sci-fi movies. Vast lands covered in a salt spread as far as an eye can see. Nature used Mangistau as its workshop carving cliffs with wind and rain, painting them with multicoloured chalks. And the jewel of such work is Karyn Zharyk, a depression, the bottom of which is covered in salt-marshes that make the mountains seem to float on a cloud. There is also Tuzbair lake “Salty Walls”. Having a walk on the surface of the lake as if you are a hero of old legends possessing powers mentioned in Bible, and look at the water under you feet separated by a seemingly thin layer of salt.

Mangistau is also a land filled with human creations striking in beauty. Underground mosques, historical monuments and remnants of forgotten civilizations are hidden among cliffs and valleys.
