Description

On the border with China, Russia and Mongolia, at the foot of the northern slopes of the Sarymsakty mountain range lies a unique area - Katon-Karagai. The nature in these places impresses even the most sophisticated travelers.

The horns of a young deer - antlers - are highly valued in Eastern medicine. It is In the antlers of the deer accumulate biologically active healing substances.

In the Katon-Karagay National Park there is one rare type of agriculture is developed - maral breeding. The farm breeds marals, where you can see how antlers are cut. On the basis of an extract from the neo-stiffened horns of the deer, local health centers carry out health-improving procedures — antler baths and inhalations based on panto-containing products.
