Sauran and Shaitan Lake

For the first time, mention of the ancient city of Sauran appeared at the beginning of the 10th century. The settlement considered as one of the most important monuments of the medieval urban culture of Kazakhstan.

Local nature is truly unique: the Kyzylarai Mountains lie in the east, the Ulytau Mountains to the west, and the Karkaraly Mountains to the north-east. And the southern part is composed of Betpak-Dala clayey desert and Turan sandy lowland.
