The mysterious kingdom of the snow leopard in Almaty

The film crew of Outdoor World was invited to take part in a joint expedition of the Ile-Alatau National Park and the Institute of Zoology of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan.  We go to the Aksai gorge.  Many are sure that in our time untouched wildlife can be seen only in distant lands, where planes do not fly, and trains do not run, where wild animals are sheltered from human eyes by impenetrable mountains, forests and swamps.  For many, it will be a surprise to know that the mysterious kingdom of the snow leopard begins ten kilometers from the city of two million.
