The tours often follow the Aksu and Zhabagly rivers within designated parks. Kazakhstan's Western Tien-Shan Mountains contain pristine ecosystems. These mountain areas are the ideal place for cultural and historical heritage.

Guides will lead tourists through these impressive waterfalls and eventually follow the gorge to camp in the ranger station or under the stars. The Kaskabulak Petroglyphs provide beautiful insights into the past. The connections between the landscape, guides, and horses will create memories that last a lifetime.
