Nature-lovers will find an unexpected paradise in Altyn-Emel National Park. The park covers 90 between the Ili River and Aktau mountain range. It is a mysterious and beautiful country with a long history and the unique natural environment. Nowhere you can find more amazing remains of the Saka culture: ancient burial mounds and rock paintings of wild animals and hunting scenes.
Another unique natural wonder is the Singing Sand Dune, 182 km north-east of Almaty, on the right bank of the Ili River. In dry weather this sand-dune emits a sound like a pipe organ playing. The Singing Sand Dune makes an unforgettable impression. The humming and vibration are caused by the scarcely perceptible movement of sand sliding down the slope. The friction caused by the movement of the dry grains of sand, combined with the dry air, electrifies them, causing the vibration. Because of the surrounding favourable resonant conditions, powerful sound waves are produced which, bouncing off the solid ground, also cause the dune to vibrate. The sound can be heard from several kilometres away. The dune does not "sing" in wet weather.

The dune is over 120 m high and 4 km long. Despite the looseness of the sand and the strong winds, the dune does not move around the plain but has remained in the same place for millennia. Its south-western slope is smooth while the opposite north-eastern side has several ridges with gentle inclines. The dune has a sharp ridge with several protruding peaks, so it is actually possible to ski down it.
