Buiratau state national nature Park was established on March 11, 2011.
National Park “Buiratau” (translated from Kazakh – “Curly mountains”) is located in the transition zone between the subzones of moderate-arid and dry steppes, which causes the uniqueness of the territory in a combination of steppe ecosystems with forest (birch Kolki, black Sandstone).
The objects of the protected areas Fund are: forest, geological, hydrogeological, geomorphological, Zoological and Botanical objects.
The territory of the national Park “Buiratau” is located in the center of the Asian continent and therefore has a climate of sharply continental type. The influence of air masses from the Arctic, temperate and southern latitudes causes aridness of the spring-summer period, high summer and low winter temperatures, insufficient and unstable annual precipitation with their summer maximum, and significant wind activity throughout the year.
