THE ASSY PLATEAU

Assy Plateau Almaty

The Assi plateau is located in Kazakhstan. They represent the territory through which caravans from various European countries, as well as Central Asian states, were moving to China or India.

The Assi plateau originates near Almaty. They simply amaze with their size and reach a width of up to ten 10 km, and a length of up to 60. The asses of the plateau represented not only a certain route for caravans, but also a place of pasture.

Features
This is a unique valley, striking with its magical and fabulous beauties. The altitude reaches 2.6 km above sea level. It originates 44 kilometers from the Turgen Gorge, it ends near the Chilik gorge. Along the entire route there are a lot of fabulous and magical places, unique trees of unusual shapes, fabulous hills, stones overgrown with moss, as well as very clean water.

Fact
It is best to start your journey along the Assi Plateau in the Turgen Valley. There are a large number of waterfalls of various sizes here. Cool water flows in almost all of them. After the valley, another attraction opens before your eyes. We are talking about the Assa Observatory in Turgen. It is here that one of the largest telescopes is installed, which is used to study astronomical and celestial bodies. There is nothing like the Assi Plateau in Turgen in the world. There are mounds on which you can find many drawings right on the rocks, various hieroglyphs, episodes that have come down from Ancient Times. Scientists and specialists are still puzzling over them.

How to get to a fabulous place
This route can be safely called a round-the-world trip. It is practically impossible to get to them without an SUV. First you need to take a south-easterly direction and get to Issyk. It is necessary to pass this locality parallel to the mountains. After you get to the village of Turgen, you need to abruptly change the direction of your movement to the south. It's not far from the gorge here.

Today there are many photos of the Assa Plateau, all of them surprise with their beauty and fabulousness.
