Charyn National Park Tours

4x4 Campervan Tour to Red Mountains of Boguty

The landscape of the Boguty (Bogety) Mountains resemble the surface of the red planet Mars. You feel like you are really on Mars, the red-hot desert of Boguty gives you such an impression. But this is only in the hot summer, and the rest of the year, the Boguty planet is very friendly and diverse, with 50 shades of red: from soft pastel to bright exuberant colors, contrasting the bright-blue sky.

The Red Mountains of Boguty are territorially related to the Charyn National Park. However, this is a very quiet and secluded place, remote from such popular routes as the Charyn Canyon, but also very special and beautiful.

Take a break from everyday hustle and bustle of the city - the Red Mountains Boguty are simply created for solitude in the wilderness.
