Kazakhstan Tour – the Country is one of the ten largest Countries in the World and has plenty of potential for Cultural, Nature, Mountain, Beach, Hiking and Adventure Travel. The modern megacity Nur Sultan (Astana) alone, built in the middle of the Desert, attracts hundreds of thousands of people. Kazakhstan with its vast steppes is a very ideal country for hiking tours. In addition, the Country has many national Parks and Nature Reserves. Due to the fact that the Kazakhs are historically nomadic, our guests have the opportunity to visit Kazakh Yurts and learn about the traditions of the nomadic people. Hunting with a Falcon, which is typical for the nomadic peoples, is a very interesting experience for foreign visitors as well. Moreover, the Kazakhs are by nature very good horsemen. For those who are interested in horseback Riding, Kazakhstan is also an ideal Country.

Kazakhstan is the Birthplace of the first Apple. This is neither a Legend nor a Myth. The apple of temptation and the first story of human love – the love of Adam and Eve – began here in the Kazakh Country near the foothills of the Alatau. In the natural border of the Almaly Gorge, as these places have been called for a thousand Years, there is really an abundance of paradise Gardens. Scientists who have carried out genetic studies on all the varieties of apple currently known claim that the birthplace of the first and possibly the biblical apple is Kazakhstan or the Almaly border. With Turkestan Travel you will visit all the mysterious and interesting places of Kazakhstan on this Kazakhstan Tour.
