(Kazakhstan and its Martian landscapes)
The Ustyurt Plateau is a huge desert area, stretching in a wide line from north to south between the eastern shore of the Caspian Sea and the disappearing Aral Sea. The Ustyurt Plateau was once a crossroads of civilizations, the Caravan Road to Khorezm passed here. For centuries this road was used by those who wanted to get from the banks of the Volga to Central Asia quickly. Ustyurt Plateau was considered the most difficult and dangerous part of the path.
Traveling along the Ustyurt Plateau is a unique opportunity to visit the prehistoric past and another planet at the same time.
A combination of huge mountain remains sticking out of the chalk scree in the form of bizarre fairy-tale castles and fantastic characters, the ancient bottom of the world ocean with the fossilized remains of marine inhabitants, endless sandy and rocky deserts in the crimson light of the setting day, a web of dirt roads covering a multi-colored hilly landscape - all of this will give you to an indescribable delight.
We will drive along an endless number of sandy roads, climb rocky cliffs from which you may enjoy the unforgettable views of the Ustyurt Plateau. You should definitely see it with your own eyes! It's unforgettable!
