Some photos from the trip to the Western Kazakhstan, May 2009. The road there is left from Soviet times, it is paved and straight as a line, more than 600 miles long. Then suddenly in the middle of nowhere the road simply ends
and you have to go on your own risk, using gps or maps. Then night comes and you are totally lost, moving in total darkness for 200 miles more.
The most interesting place there that attracts visitors is called “The Fallen Earth”. A big area of the Earth surface looks like it broke down beneath the ground for many miles long. People often stand on the edge of this giant cup looking down and wonder – how this could ever happen to any place? It has been said that there is no hundred percent true version of how it did.
People lived here for thousand years and there are signs of the most ancient cultures that are still visible and can be seen.
