Location: Almaty, Kazakhstan (2013-2018).
Photographer: Tenyakov Pavel.
Assistants: Elijah Tenyakov, Matthew Tenyakov, Alexej Gessel.
The idea of creating a video about the nature of Almaty and Almaty region, was born in 2012.
The inspiration was the video work of photographer Terje Sorgjerd - The Mountain (vimeo.com/22439234).
The material for this video was shoted during 5 years. Mostly in my free time. The final video included only the best shots.
In this video you will see the main natural beauties of Almaty and Almaty region. Such as: Kolsay Lake (1st and 2nd), Lake Kaindy, Charyn Canyon, Big Almaty Lake, Issyk Lake, Assy Plateau, Bartogai Reservoir, Taban Karagai, Tamgaly-Tas, Tuzkol Lake, Aksai Gorge, Butakovskiy Falls, Turgen Falls (2nd), Tuyuksu Tract, Big Talgar Pass (Chimbulak), Poppy Fields, Wheat Fields, Talgar Peak and of course Mount Zailiisky Alatau.
All listed locations are located within a radius of 300 km from Almaty. That allows you to visit them in one day.
