Mountains are located in the direction from the southwest on the northeast Average heights in the central part of the ridge make 2000 meters above sea level, in its southwest part - 700 - 800 meters above sea level. Separate tops reach 2500 - 2800 meters above sea level.
The highest point of Karzhantau - the mountain Mingbulak of 2823 meters above sea level. Going down to the southwest, the ridge passes into Karachatau height. In this area, along the ridge there passes the site of frontier between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan 30 - 40 km long.
In the north Karzhantau lasts practically in the width direction. Total length of the ridge makes 90 km. The ridge has an asymmetric structure. From Karzhantau southeast forms very steep, steep side slopes which are cut deeply up by gorges. Karzhantau limits in the West the valley of the river Ugam.
