The Dzhungarian Alatau is 450-kilometer long mountain range within the system of ranges that comprise the Tien Shan on the border of Kazakhstan and China. The largest ridges of the Dzhungarian Alatau rise above 4,000 meters; crowned Semenov-Tien-Shansky Peak (4,622m) in the north and Panfilov Peak (4,370m) in the south. This range has more than 700 glaciers covering an area of about 1,000 square kilometers, which feed the rivers of the Semirechye region.

In the east of this range, one finds the Dzungar Gates, a major passage of the Silk Road and the entry point for many invasions of Kazakhstan and Central Asia throughout history.  This region is dotted with archeological sites including burial mounds and the remains of ancient settlements.

Kazakhstan’s largest national park operates within the Dzungarian Alatau, and this is a great place to escape from civilization, enjoy wilderness in the raw, and observe unspoiled nature.
