Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan means ‘land of the wanderers’ and visitors to the world’s ninth largest country with Imaginative Traveller will find plenty worth exploring here. Visit its capital city Astana and be astounded by its futuristic architecture, or its biggest city Almaty, which remains the country’s financial and cultural hub.

Venture beyond the cities and you’ll find soaring mountains, expansive deserts, lakes, and the Kazakh Steppe, one of the largest intact dry steppe regions in the world. Lace up your hiking boots and get wandering!
