Not many people make it here, but those who do are rewarded with incredible sights and unique cities. Almaty is a city nestled near the border of Kyrgyzstan. While the city itself boasts delicious restaurants, cafes, and a colorful church, it’s the nature near the city that makes it one of the most undiscovered places in the world. Nearby is the Big Almaty Lake, a stunning turquoise blue lake in the mountains, Kok Tobe Mountain, and Charyn Canyon, known as the Grand Canyon’s Little Brother. Kazakhstan has some of the most stunning nature in the world, so get there before everyone else figures it out (via Dook International).
