Tour in Mangystau - Boszhira

Day trip to the Boszhira valley

Traveling around Mangyshlak

Boszhira valley is the shore of the ancient Tethys Ocean, scientists and researchers say so. In the distant past, there was no desert here, the waves of the ocean lapped here. Boszhira Gorge is a natural object located 300 km from the city of Aktau. The center of the Mangystau region is the territory of the Karakiyansky district. This part of the plateau consists of desert landscapes formed by limestone, high cliffs up to 250 meters high. On this territory you can find ancient fossils of snails, sea urchins, belemnites, and even the tooth of a shark that lived in the Tethys Ocean of the Mesozoic era. Limestones and rocks formed on the site of the ancient ocean have become a proud "masterpiece" of Mangystau. The gorge contains archaeological sites dating back to the period from the Paleolithic to the Early Middle Ages. Boszhira Gorge is included in the list of specially protected areas of Mangystau region and is part of the state nature reserve.
