Karagie is a unique natural site in the south-west of Kazakhstan. Its name is translated from Kazakh as “a black hollow”. And even though it is not of a black color, but with dominating yellow and white, it is considered as one of the lowest points in the world – it reaches 132 meters below the sea level. They say there used to be a salt lake Batir in place of the hollow some time ago, but now there is only lifeless desert surrounded by massive steeps. One-day tour to these places will allow you to see the beauty of Kazakh deserts, besides they are located only 50km away from Aktau.
