Nomadic landscapes galore
Experience the wide-open spaces of Kazakhstan, the “Land of the Free Spirited.” Within a country that descends from nomadic tribes of horsemen, travelers can indulge their own curious whims in landscapes of endless steppe and in cosmopolitan cities such as Astana and Almaty. Rich in natural resources, Kazakhstan is actually the ninth largest country in the world – and it’s ideal for soft adventure travel. Visit the petroglyph displays of Tanbaly, with their scenes of hunt dances and wild animals, some of which are believed to be from the Bronze Age. Taste local vintages at a winery in Karakemer village. Tour Almaty and its surroundings, including the verdant Panifiloy Park and the neary Museum of Musical Instruments, where you’ll find more than 60 types of Kazakh folk music instruments. Venture into the mountains to Medeo, drive through scenic Kegen pass and marvel at the Charyn Canyon, 125 miles of red-clay canyon walls, caves and grottoes.
