  A valley with a natural accumulation of about 4000 unique petroglyphs. It feels like in ancient open-air art gallery. Each picture is a message from centuries back telling about gods, rituals and life of ancestors of present days Kazakhs. Some inscriptions are as much as 3 thousand years old and even more. They are made on black flat surfaces of rocks and cliffs darkened by ages of influence of solar radiation by metal chisels.

Aliases: Petroglyphs, Stone inscriptions.
