Charles Darwin.

Climbing mountain Axoran in mountains Kyzylaray.

Axoran is the highest point of Kyzylarai mountains and Kazakh low hills (Sary-Arka) overall; its height is 1,565 meters above sea level. Kyzylarai Mountains are remarkable with their untouched nature; tourists are very rare guests here.
In 80 kilometers to the south from Karkaralinsky Mountains the highest massif of Saryarka – Axoran Hill (1565 m) is located. Axoran in translation from Kazakh is "white elevation", or more exactly "white steep-sloped elevation distinguishing among the others". 
It rises in KyzyIrai massif ("rai" is "summit" for Mongolian) where there is the most southern pine light-forest.  Kyzylarai is a massif, a part of the Kazakh Melkosopochnik (Kazakh Uplands), situated in Karaganda Region in Central Kazakhstan.
The place is extremely rich in natural and historical sights. Begazy burial grounds (Begazy-Dandybai culture of the Bronze Age) are one of them. The highest point of Central Kazakhstan, Aksoran Mountain(1,565 metres (5,135 ft)) is located in Kyzylarai.
The world's largest mountain sheep, the Argali, can be seen in the area. Kyzylarai is located in the southern part of the Kazakh Uplands, north of Lake Balkhash.
