Photographer's Note

Another picture from Altyn Emel National Park.
The tourists here may enjoy magnificent natural landscapes of the Aktay mountains, which are not without reason, called lunar ones due to their distinguished color. The Aktau is chalky mountains aged over 400 million years, mainly of white color though one can meet there blue and pink, red and green slopes which add an inimitable extraterrestrial beauty to the Aktau mountains.

The National park Altyn-Emel is not only the largest and most famous natural reserve in Kazakhstan, but also a valuable and important heritage in the Kazakh culture, that is why in 2012 Kazakhstan nominated Altyn-Emel as a candidate for the UNESCO world heritage list.

I was so fascinated by these lunar views, that I haven't even noticed that it was forty degrees.
I hope you will like it too. In the park here beside me there were two couples from Almaty. Again, no tourists.

Big beta picture
