Title

Akkegershin Plateau is located on the border of Atyrau and Aktobe Provinces, about 245 km (152 mi) away from the city of Atyrau.

Approaching the plateau, you will observe how the steppe changes its color – from brownish-gray to snow-white.

You can drive up to the foot of the buttes or you can admire them from afar. Undoubtedly, it is better to have time to explore the area. The most famous buttes are called "Three Brothers," a popular photography location. The rest of the buttes are so far nameless; you can use your imagination and come up with names for them. However, rains and strong winds are gradually changing the appearance of these snow-white "sculptures." Thanks to this phenomenon, what today resembles a turtle may well become a "dragon" in a year or two.

If the weather is dry during your trip, the surface under your feet will be hard and not crumbling. In this case, walking and climbing the buttes will be very easy, without any damage to them. The rocks become very slippery when it’s raining, however, so be careful. Another reason to look under your feet – you have every chance to find fossilized ammonite shells and shark teeth.
