Tour to Mount Sherkala from Aktau city

Looking at Mount Sherkala from afar, you can see the magnificent Roman pantheons, ancient monuments. As you approach the mountain, you will see columns of separate walls, columns of white mountains, similar to destroyed statues. Sherkala in translation from Arabic means "tiger city". Once upon a time on this ridge on the road from the Bozashi peninsula to Khorezm and Khiva there was a military fortress. The fortress was built at the foot of the north-eastern slope of the pyramidal mountain. After that, a tunnel was dug, which rises into two sections and rises to the top of the ridge. The length of the fortress is 300 m. There is a place for archers with a capacity of two or three people.
