‘Uly Dala Yeline Sayakhat’ expedition has finished
The beautiful and unique nature of Kazakhstan continues to impress the members of the ‘Uly Dala Yeline Sayakhat’ expedition. The entire trip has included six different routes to the country’s eleven regions. The expedition members have travelled for the past 2.5 months, and the New Silk Road was the final route of the large-scale project. As part of the expedition, journalists, travel operators, foreign and Kazakh travel bloggers and the team of National Geographic Russia visited Zhambyl, Almaty and Turkistan regions. The expedition members explored historical and cultural heritage sites, including the ancient city of Taraz, Aksu-Zhabagly Nature Reserve, Sayram-Ugam National Park, as well as Mausoleums of Arystan-bab and Khoja Ahmed Yasawi and Sauran and Otyrar ancient settlements.
ARYSTANBEK MUKHAMEDIULY, KAZAKH MINISTER OF CULTURE AND SPORTS:
- As part of the Modernization of Kazakhstan’s Identity program, we should demonstrate all the holy places of Kazakhstan to the whole world. The expedition is very interesting. I hope that this large-scale project will continue because Kazakhstan has so many beautiful places and rich nature. We must show it to everyone. This is our main goal which must be achieved.
Following the results of the expedition, a series of programs devoted to wonderful places of the republic will be aired on Kazakh TV.
