“Tamgaly – Atass”
Reviewed 13 November 2011

Very difficult to reach without tour guide bus (cost USD$200 or more). I went solo, to reduce cost, took bus to Uzynagach and then haggled with the bus driver who then asked his nephew to drive me to Tamgaly Atass (mountain) by car for USD$70. Road condition is very bad and the local have no idea of this place as the UNESCO site is not well-known internally – however actual site is well maintained. The site is on route to Kopa train station (in the middle of nowhere with NO road signs at all – ridiculous).
