Bektauatinsky State Reserve is located 60 km north of the city of Balkhash.
This mountain massif is nothing but an unborn volcano.
In the distant past, in the Paleozoic era, on the border of carbon and Perm, a large volcano was born here.
It melted the rocks but never exploded. In this place, there was a giant granite plug, which closed the vent forever.
