Tidbit Tuesday: Geographic highlights of Kazakhstan

As I have spent the last couple of weeks traveling through the western part of the united states I thought it might be fun to do a picture post that highlighted the various geographic regions of Kazakhstan.  So, here is the map I am using as a frame of reference.  Pay attention the the mountains, highlands and rivers named in dark gray.

Tien Shan Mountains
(south of Almaty)

Kazakh Uplands

Altai Mountains

Dzhezkazgan desert and Betpaqdala

Ustyurt Plateau

Turgay Plateau
(North Central)
