The unique landscape of Altyn-Emel gives every right to call it a geological and paleontological park. Altyn-Emel is a real open-air museum, where geological deposits and structures are presented on a relatively compact territory, formed in different eras from the Paleozoic to the present day.

Here you can see stunning evidence of the complex tectonic, volcanic and precipitating processes that have taken place in this area for several hundred million years and continue to this day. This long and complex geological history has determined the uniqueness and variety of the modern landscape and the richness of flora and fauna in the Altyn-Emel park.

The main landscapes of the Altyn-Emel park are sandy-desert, gravelly-clay-desert and mountainous. In general, Altyn-Emel is a large desert surrounded by high mountain ranges of Dzhungarian Alatau in the north and west, by the Katutau and Aktau desert mountains in the east, and by the wide Ili river in the south.
