Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It is an hour's drive from Kapchagay. Take the second exit (44.095211, 77.064987). This road is much better than the road from the earlier exit.
From the entrance (44.064266, 76.996056), it was a 300-meter walk to the petroglyphs, located against a rock wall and easily accessible.
A bit further, there were more petroglyphs, but these were less remarkable. In fact, you've seen it all after a few minutes and it's only recommended if you are specifically interested in petroglyphs or if you have plenty of time.
In early September on a Wednesday, there were several dozen tourists, some with a tent.

First of all, do not get sidetracked by the photos posted, many of them are not from the Tamgaly open air museum of petrogliphs. That said, the place is worthy the daily trip, if you love the idea of being "in connection" with Scithian and Kurgan ancestors. The place, moreover, give you a glipmse of what the steppe looks like, with the golden fields all around you, spanning to the horizon.

I travelled there with 2 friends of mine. I drove in my car. It took us around 2 hrs to get there. As you drive there you will enjoy the endless steppe.
The entrance fee is 200 KZT/person.
Most of all I enjoyed walking along the river. We climbed up to see the petroglyphs (it's not steep) and had a lovely picnic around the rocks.

Loved the whole experience - big parking lot, cool yurts, not crowded if you go early. The walk through the canyon was pleasant, the petroglyphs were amazing, great access. There are several different sites that you walk to, the last part is uphill and has some of the best petroglyphs. After we drove to Almaty Lake and hiked around a bit. Great trip overall.

An interesting walk around a number of groupings of ancient petroglyphs. Some can be a scramble to get to but are worth the effort. Lovely wild flowers along the way.

1. accessible with normal car
2. last 10 km is unpaved, maze of 2, 3 different paths - look at locals if you don't see which one to go;
3. a lot of locals on the banks of river is camping;
4. apply insect repellent - there are grazing animals in the valley
5. petroglyphs aren't very impressive, landscapes here are more interesting.

You kan touch and discover lots of these præhistorical signs from former times in the area. Maybe it should not be that easy to get to.
Parking ground nearby and a authentic souvenirseller in a tent close to the entrace, which nærly is for fri.

My partner and I hired a driver to drive us there from the city of Almaty last summer. It took us a couple hours to be there. The whole journey to there was amazing with wonderful view. But once we arrived there, the road was not easy to ride, the area is filled with flies and mosquitoes... we have to covered our faces the whole time. It is an amazing place to visit after all with a very spiritual touch, local people were fishing along the river. We have spent around 45 mins over there to appreciate the historical art pieces, but have had to leave due to the annoying flies...

If you want to see petroglyfs, be very careful where you go. Tamgaly Tas is NOT the same as Tamgaly! In Tamgaly Tas there are only a few petroglyfs and they are quite new. The UNESCO-site is Tamgaly and is in a different direction.

We did the Tamgaly Tas Petroglyphs tour last week while in Almaty before our drive around Kazakhstan. It was another beautiful area of the country, the guide was great and had lots of information to share about everything. Thousands of rock drawings of all types and sizes can be seen all throughout the UNESCO protected gorges. It is fabulous to see and great that it is being protected for future generations to see, the only qualm I had was that it was a long day to get there and back from Almaty, would have been nice to have more time at the gorge and less time on the road but minor complaint overall.
