As well as swans, geese, ducks, cranes, larks, herons and a great many other birds. On the way back, we will visit the memorial complex of victims of political repression in ALZHIR. The price includes: transport, set lunch, guide, all entrance tickets, excursion to ALZHIR, eco fees.
Korgalzhynsky reserve was created in 1968 to preserve the unique wetlands that are the habitat of flamingos, curly pelicans and other birds.
Most of the territory is occupied by salt and fresh water reservoirs. The territory is basically a system of two lakes: the flowing lake Korgalzhyn and the drainless lake Tengiz, connected to each other. Tengiz-Korgalzhyn lakes are not only the most extensive water area of the steppe zone, but also one of the most unique places on the entire Eurasian continent: two important migration routes of birds — Central Asian and Siberian-southern European-cross here.
Since 1994, the pink Pelican has been regularly found on the territory of the reserve. Breeding populations of flamingos and Oxyura leucocephala are the largest in Central Asia.
