In Kazakhstan there is also a valley worth seeing for the curious tourist. The depth of Karagije Valley is 132 meters, it is located in the southwestern part of the country, on the territory of the Mangyschlaks peninsula. Karagije is one of the deepest dry valleys of Asia. Its steep peculiarities are the steep slopes. The name of the valley is formed by connecting two Turkic words - 'Kara' ('black') and 'Kija' ('steep slope'). The sink also has another unofficial name - 'Batyr', which is translated as 'fighter'.
Karagije Valley has not only the steep slopes, but also quite regular oval shape. Its length is about 85 km, and the latitude - 25 km. According to one of the versions, the valley has formed as a result of the karst and lowering processes, which lasted for thousands of years near the coast of the Caspian Sea. The numerous canyons and gorges in the valley indicate that these processes continue today. The depth of Karagije Valley is constantly increasing.
It is recommended to tourists to walk along the bottom of the lowland, accompanied by the local guide, because it will be extremely difficult for the unprepared person to walk on their cut-up ground. Apart from the picturesque deserts of Kazakhstan, another phenomenon attracts tourists to this region. It is the huge number of unknown flying objects. Literally all the tourists who stay next to the valley, see the UFOs. To the reason of the attention of UFOs to this valley one can only in guesses. Next - Afar Depression
