These blue, red, white, pink, green slopes cut by erosion, so unusual that it is impossible to overlook them.

So-called Singing Dune is a popular attraction in Altyn-Emel. The size of the Dune is enormous: its length is about two-three kilometers, with the height of about 120 meters. What is unique about the Dune is that in dry weather it produces melody-like sounds, which is the very reason for calling it Singing Dune. The ‘song’ of the Dune can be heard even several kilometers away from its location.
