Natural Oasis of Kazakhstan
When the God created the world, – as a legend has it, – one people was bestowed large woods, green fields and wide rivers, another people got beautiful mountains and blue lakes. But the Kazakh people got only steppes. It hurt the Kazakh; feelings and they began to ask the creator to give them a particle of the wonderful nature.
And the God scratched from the bottom of his bag and threw in the middle of lifeless steppe the remnants of the picturesque mounting cliffs and lakes with crystal-clear bluish water, distributed with his generous hand emerald meadows covered with flowers, springs with icy-cold water and merrily murmuring brooks. He covered the mountains with a colorful carpet of different trees and bushes abounded the forests with animals and birds, lakes with fish and meadows with insects and butterflies, which cannot be found in the steppes one hundred miles around. Thus Borovoye came to light.
In the north of Kazakhstan, between Astana and Kokchetav cities there is a wonderful district, a real oasis – Borovoye. Geographically this nook is called as Kokchetav highs and the local guides gave it a name of Kazakhstani Switzerland.
The highs of Borovoye are very low: 500-600 m. at the marks of the cuts in the waters, in the lakes are 300-400 m. and the Kokchetau Cliff riches 947 m. The highest point of Kokchetau mountain (Blue Mountain). To the south is situated Burabai Mountain (690 m.) a fine panoramic point. Burabai is a camel. Still to the south there are Shychinskiye deeps, the largest of them is called Zheke-Batur – a lonesome fighter (826 m.)
One can not be help mentioning about the lakes of Borovoye. There are many. Lakes Shychie, Borovoye, Big and Small Chebachie, Koturkul glitter on the green atlas of the forest.
Small lakes Svetloye, Karasye, Gornoye, Lebedinoye can be seen from Kokchetau Cliff. The visiting card of Borovoye is the Blue Bay on the same named lake. Right from the waters of the bay Mount Zhumbaktas (Mystery, Sphinx) soars.
Every name here has its own legend. For example Sphinx is interesting when one looks at him from different points, for then one can see the face of young lady with waving hair, then that of a woman and in the end that of an old woman.

Borovoye is more beautiful than a fairy tale. The harmony of the mountains and the woods and lakes creates not only unique beauty of the landscape, but also a special medical climate.
