A trip to the mountains of Ungoza.

3.1 kilometers south of the southern coast of the Sarytash bays are two mountains, actually Ungoza and Ungosa East, 196.5 meters high above sea level. Both mountains are located in the Mangistau region of the Mangistau region.
Ungoza Mountain, consists of two separate massifs, which are located west of Ungoza East north and south. The southern massif of Mount Ungoza rises to a height of 206.6 meters above sea level, this is the highest mark of the mountain massif.
The length of the Southern Ungosa massif is 876 meters, the largest width, in the southern part, is 390 meters. The northern mountain of Ungoza reaches a height of 199.2 meters above sea level, the length of this mountain is 1.3 kilometers, the largest width is 531 meters.
The length of Mount Ungoza East reaches 3 kilometers, it is stretched from southwest to northeast, the width in the central part of the mountain is 664 meters. To the south-east of Ungoza East, 2.3 kilometers are small mountains 193.8 meters high above sea level.
Shakpatasay Canyon is located in the south-west of the Ungoza massif, in the south of Kaushe Mountain with a dominant elevation of 218.2 meters above sea level. In the east, 6.8 kilometers away is the valley of the Kumakapa River, along the channel of which at the end of the 30s of the last century, a narrow gauge railway was laid from Sarytash marina to coal mines near the village of Taushyk.
Ungosa massif can be attributed to the table mountains, composed of sedimentary rocks. T
he slopes of Ungoza are steep and in some places almost steep. In the context, this type of geological formation has an oblong shape, that is, in one of the directions of the plateau at the top of the mountain is elongated.
The upper part of the Ungoza mountain form is due to the processes of denudation-erosion and weathering.
