This is a great national park not to be missed! Beautiful sand dunes and stunning white mountains are just two of its many more than worthy sights to explore. It can get pretty warm here in summertime.

Well worth seeing, the white mountains - they are actually cristal (!!) and the sand dunes. They do not often sing by them selves, but you can help them, and it's a lot of fun. Hire the local guides/rangers/gid, they really care for the many...More

You can rent a car in Alamaty. Not sure there's one in the villages. We paid around 30 usd daily fee for an old Lexus 350 which we used to drive around the park (which was not allowed by the rental contract though).
