Two-Day Campervan Tour to Altyn-Emel



We kindly ask you to book a tour to Altyn-Emel in advance, at least a few days before the planned trip.

The Singing Dune, the Aktau cretaceous mountains, and the Katutau lava mountains are rare natural phenomena in the Altyn-Emel National Park. The huge sand dunes of Aigaikum and the grandiose massifs of volcanic and sedimentary rocks of Katutau and Aktau are the consequences of violent geological processes in the Ili valley.

We offer you an exciting 2-day camping tour from the Basshi village to Altyn-Emel with an overnight stay in a comfortable motorhome at the foot of the Aktau mountains.

The fantastic Martian beauty of the Aktau mountains leaves no one indifferent. Here you definitely need to meet sunset and dawn and take impressive photographs of the bizarre multi-colored canyons and landscapes of alien beauty.

Total distance: about 250 km

Duration: 2 days, 1 night in the park

Tourist routes: Route 1 (Singing Dune), marked in yellow on the map, and Route 3 (Aktau mountains), marked in red
