The Talas Alatau is the western part of the Tien Shan range, and stretches till the gates of Shymkent. Its mid-hight side range Karatau stretches deep into the Моууnkum desert. Оn the outskirts of this range the population's density is
particularly high to Kazakh standards. This is not only related to the riches in water thanks to the glacier rivers, but also with the migration of Kazakh tribes from the steppe to the foothills. Both under the Czars and under Stаlin this policy was
pursued, and the disроssеssiоn and forced settlement of the Kazakhs has put its stamp оп southern Kazakhstan more than in any other part of the country. The Kazakh language and culture are predominant here, and most of all in auls one  
should take this in consideration and adapt one's behaviour to it. Massive and rocky ridge of the West Tien – Shan, forms in upper waters of Aksu and Dzhabagly rivers, by the names of which is the name given to Preserve, mountain chain which is more than 4000 meters above sea level.
