Tour the Heart of Mangishlak, Aktau city, Mangistau region

The Mangystau Peninsula is located in the northeast of the Caspian Sea. It stretches 390 km from the narrow small Tupkaragan peninsula in the northwest to Ustyurt in the southeast, from the Caspian basin in the north to the Karabugaz Bay in the south. The Mangystau Peninsula consists of high plateaus and low mountains. The northwest is covered by the Mangystau mountains. The bowels of the peninsula are rich in oil and gas, in addition, there is manganese, phosphorite, and coal.

There are no rivers on the Mangystau plain. The peculiarity of the area is that along the shores of the Caspian Sea and in the bowels of Ustyurt there are many dried lakes and hollows (Koshkarat, Karakiya, Kaunda, Ashysai, Zhazgurly, etc.). The depressions sometimes merge with each other and turn into large depressions. They are all below sea level. The deepest is the Karakiya (Batyr) depression, the bottom of which is covered with large litter.
