The Kokala Valley is one of the spectacular natural landscapes of the Ustyurt Plateau. It is a work of rock art filled with bright colors amidst the reddish-brown earth. Over the years, erosion by wind and other factors has carved the rock surface into complex shapes, exposing its surface to the elements in a variety of colors. Visitors can appreciate the mysteries of the earth created through the passage of time while actually walking along the rocky terrain.
The Ustyurt Plateau stretches across Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. It is a desert area of approximately 200,000 square kilometers, with cliffs more than 150 meters high on its periphery. The uplift of geological strata accumulated at the bottom of the sea in prehistoric times and weathering has created a variety of landforms. Camping tours are popular to visit miraculous and spectacular landscapes such as canyons that seem to cut through the earth and pure white rock peaks.
