"There are 12 national parks in Kazakhstan, three of which are marked on the map of our route. Each of them has its own unique beauty, the preservation of which in its original form should be important for every indifferent Kazakhstani," Nurzhan Algashov, head of the expedition, manager of international and scientific projects at QazaqGeography, shared.

Further on the route are two national parks: Kokshetau Nature Park and Korgalzhyn State Nature Reserve, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
