Akmysh the stream with a small grove on the banks. Taras Shevchenko called this place the miracle number two on Mangyshlak. The tract is the first oasis, tourist attraction, away – the
legendary, sacred mountain Sherkala.
There was a time when growing age-old willows, but they are long gone, and replaced by planting, produced by the local shepherd Tokimbaev. The stream, fed by mountain springs, turns into a small stream, then dry due because of dry spring.
