As one can find around 500 species of birds including endangered species within Kazakhstan, it should come as no surprise that the entire country is a mecca for bird watchers and ornithologists from around the world.  Demand for tours into conservation areas and the wilderness is growing, especially in search of the rare species of birds that nest in the areas around Lakes Alakol and Balkhash and the Trans-Ili and Dzungarian Alatau mountains, partly in reserves but also in areas accessible to the public.  The symbol of Lake Alakol is the relict gull. Balkhash is worth visiting if only to see the pink pelican, the mute swan, and large white herons. In the Trans-Ili and Dzungarian Alatau mountains one can also find rare bearded vultures, black storks, ibisbills, golden eagles, Griffon vultures, Egyptian vultures, and booted eagles. Not sure where to begin? Our ornithologist guide can help!
