“As soon as man seeks to penetrate the secrets of nature - in which nothing is secret and it is but a question of seeing - he realizes that the simple produces the supernatural” 

Honore de Balzac.

Author's tour to Kazakhstan.

The mountain ridge Kulzhabasy is prolonged in latitude direction. Its tops reach the height from 800 up to 1180 m above sea level. Mountain ridge is situated to the north from Chuili Mountains. It is connected with them by slightly seen bulkhead.
The middle part of Chuili Mountains in the region of stations Kurdai and Anrakhai is called Kindyktas. The Valley of Kora River is situated between the mountain ridge of Kulzhabasy and Kindyktas.
Small streams and rivers, flowing to the valley, are becoming dry, but already in middle ages and XVIII - XIX c.c. they were full-flowing, on which are certifying the remained traces of dam, water collectors, water distributors and the traces of irrigational systems, and also the traces of fields.
The remains of irrigational systems are in the region of railway stations Kurdai, Anrakhai and also in the canyon Oi-Djailau in Kindyktas Mountains and in the west end of Chu-Ili Mountains, what shows that in the period of moisturizing, the populations here were dealing in agriculture.
