I would like to present my private tour, where I'll be your individual English-Russian-Kazakh speaking guide and driver with my own car. During the tour I am responsible for your personal safety.


Sayram-Ugam National park is one of the picturesque places in Southern Kazakhstan. It is situated not from Shymkent city, about 70 km and located in Western Tien Shan mountain system. The park is full of wild gorges and canyons, alpine lakes and rivers, mountain peaks and glaciers. Big areas of the park are covered by evergreen forests of wild juniper, wild apple trees and wild grapes. You can meet there on the wild paths snow leopard, bear, mountain goats and gazelles, a lot of very rare and endangered birds and amphibians. 

Ak Meshit mountain cave is one of the mysterious places in South Kazkahstan. It still waits for careful scientific research. In general, this mountain region is very beautiful in terms of nature and history. There are some legends about the origin and history of this really wonderful cave.
