Tours on the ancient monuments of Ulytau.

“People usually feel funny, smile and laugh when I tell them 
about my strong belief in the very existence of prehistoric 
advanced technology and great civilizations of wilier races. 
I just can't wait to see their faces at time the truth is revealed”

Historical Monuments of Ulytau.

The ancient settlement Ayakkamyr is located 70 km northwest of the city of Zhezkazgan, located on the left bank of the Zhezdy River at the confluence of the Karabulak stream in the Ulytau district of the Karaganda region, 9 kilometers northwest of the village of Zhezdy, on the left bank of the Zhezdy River.
The hillfort is a highly pollinated square mound with sides of 60 x 60 meters. Up to 1 meter high and oriented by corners on the cardinal points. There is a moat on three sides of the fortification; on the fourth south-western side, the remains of structures adjoin the fortification in the form of heavily swollen elongated hillocks and fragmentary preserved stone walls.
The eastern corner of the settlement was destroyed by earthworks and can be traced along the moat. At the corners of the settlement there are towers up to 1.1 meters high. The towers protrude outward, north at 10 meters, south at 13 meters, west at 11 meters.
