The Karynzharyk Depression is a landmark of the Ustyurt Nature Reserve and the Ustyurt plateau. Karynzharyk is located in the Karakiyansky district, Mangystau region, in summer it is very hot here. We recommend traveling in this region in spring and early summer, nature here blooms and fills with colors during this period, in the second half of summer, the terrain and vegetation here completely burns out. There are many salt marshes and salt lakes in the Karynzharyk depression. The Karynzhark depression is rich in panoramic views, there are three mountains called Three Brothers or Three Batyrs, it is especially beautiful here at sunrise and sunset.

The Karynzharyk depression borders three states at once: Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, the width of the depression is 160 kilometers, the width is 40 kilometers. The famous Boszhira Valley is located here, which is part of the Karynzharyk depression. The lowest point of the Karynzharyk depression is 75 meters below sea level. When it rains here, part of the depression is covered with a thin layer of water, which gives it a fantastic look.
