#1479 Kazakhstan

The town of Karkaraly is nestled against the Karkaraly Mountains. These forests and mountains have been protected, through various government agencies since 1884. In relatively recent history, this area has historically been a place where coal and metal miners from Karaganda would come to rest. In 1998, the Karkaraly National Park was formed. The park encompasses 112,120 ha of mountains, forest, and steppe. The park is separated into 4 geographic areas and covers the Karkaraly and Kent Mountains.
