O Kazakhstan is one of the largest countries in the world in terms of territorial area, but it does not have many places classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. Fortunately, they are places with very rich and diverse historical and natural heritage.
From the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi in Turkistan, to the rock engravings of the Tamgaly region, passing through the steppes of Northern Kazakhstan, there is no shortage of sites of enormous historical importance in Kazakh territory. Not to mention the incredible Tien-Shan mountains - which, by themselves, are reason enough to visit the country.
Here is the list of places classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in Kazakhstan:
- Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi (2003)
- Petroglyphs of the Tamgaly Archaeological Landscape (2004)
- Saryarka - Steppes and Lakes of Northern Kazakhstan (2008)
- Tien-Shan (2016) (cross-border site with Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan)
A World Nomads offers one of the best and most complete travel insurance recommended by National Geographic and Lonely Planet. Other excellent and cheaper option is IATI Seguros, which has no age limit and allows multivariate insurance (including long-term travel) to any destination in the world. It's the insurance I use in my travels.
