Serektas-mountains in the Almaty region, are located in the area of the Tamgaly-Tas petroglyphs, or rather 20 kilometers from them in a picturesque steppe hilly valley. These mountains are little known, a country road leads to the mountains, which can only be driven by 4x4 jeeps. There are petroglyphs in the mountains called Serektas petroglyphs. There is no tourist infrastructure here; along the road you will meet rare livestock farms and small herds of cows, horses and sheep. The places are very beautiful, there are no people here, open hilly terrain, in clear weather, especially in the mornings, you can see the mountains, the Tien Shan ridge, which rises above the endless steppe.

Information -

The Serektas Mountains are located in the Kazakh steppe, along the road we will first move on flat terrain and soon we will drive into low hills, from these hills we will see the low Serektas Mountains. There are petroglyphs in the mountains, which are also called Serektas, just like the mountains. We recommend traveling to these mountains in spring and early summer, at this time the fields and grass on them are green and very beautiful, at this moment nature blossoms here, small flowers bloom and the area is transformed. In the second half of summer, the area is completely burned out by the scorching sun. The Serektas Mountains are not high, but very picturesque; here we will definitely meet local nomads who move around the area on their horses and herd livestock. You can stay overnight in the Serektas Mountains if you wish, but for this we will need to take the necessary equipment for an overnight stay, tents with sleeping bags.
