Mangystau is an incredible treasure chest filled with natural wonders. To fully explore its iconic sites, you'd need a week and a journey of about 1,500 kilometers. However, for those with limited time or who prefer not to spend multiple nights in a tent, we offer a condensed tour showcasing Mangystau's finest natural monuments.
Your adventure begins in Aktau. Within a few hours, you'll arrive at the Torysh valley, famed for its stone spheres, where you'll feel like a modern-day Sisyphus. Next, you'll visit the Kok-kala region, home to Jurassic-era rock formations, followed by a visit to the enigmatic Sherkala mountain, known for its mysterious allure. The day concludes with a tent stay at the base of the island mountains in the Airakty valley of castles.
Day two kicks off with a stroll through Airakty, then heads to Mangystau's most surreal sight: the Bozzhyra tract. Here, nature's grandeur unfolds with towering hundred-meter cliffs, unique limestone formations, and a vast white plain on the horizon. Your evening features a tent stay at the base of a mountain, offering views of the Milky Way.
The final day starts with a drive and a short hike to the breathtaking Fangs viewpoint, where you'll walk along a cliff's edge, creating unforgettable memories. The journey continues to Bokty Mountain and the Kyzylkup tract, also known as "Tiramisu" for its striking red and white layers. This marks the conclusion of your three-day Mangystau tour. Check out the detailed tour itinerary and start planning your extraordinary trip to Mangystau.
