Tour to Assy plateau

The high-mountainous plateau of Assy is an extraordinary corner of nature, located at a distance of 100 km from Almaty. The plateau is located at an altitude of about 3 thousand meters above sea level.

The alpine plateau of Assy is an incredible place where fantastic pictures and incredibly beautiful landscapes open before your eyes.

The Assy plateau goes east along the Assy River. Along the river you can see ancient burial mounds and rock paintings, which are one of the highest mountainous petroglyph accumulations in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The Assy-Turgen astrophysical observatory has been erected on the upper platform of the high-mountain plateau, where one of the world's largest telescopes is installed. The Assy-Turgen observatory was built by the Astrophysical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Kazakh SSR. The construction of the observatory began in 1975. Already in 1981, constant observations were started on the Zeiss meter. In 2009, the observatory received its modern name Assy. Today Assy is the only observatory in the Republic of Kazakhstan with an ideal climate.
