Kazakhstan is all about landscapes!

The vastness and diversity of landscapes coupled with the dramatic terrain create otherworldly sites.

Take Charryn Canyon, often compared to the Great Canyon.

Or Lake Balkash, one of the biggest and bluest lakes in the world.

Kazakhstan’s bustling cities can also surprise you. Go to Almaty, Shymkent, and Astana, but do so in the summer or bear with the -40 degrees winter!
