According to the organizers, the main goal of this project is to develop the potential of domestic and inbound tourism through an inventory of tourist facilities along the expedition, to develop proposals for improving infrastructure, as well as the development of new cross-border routes. Foreign guests will be interested to see the beauty and study the culture of the indigenous peoples of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. The expedition will help interested guests to create a large-scale project for the conservation of endangered animals of the Red Book.

The expedition will make a serious contribution to the achievement of the tasks outlined in Nursultan Nazarbayev’s article “The Seven Faces of the Great Steppe” and to the implementation of the Rouhani Zhangyru program, within the framework of which the task was set to use the tourism potential of cultural and geographical objects of Kazakhstan.

After the press conference, a team of professionals went on a thirteen-day expedition tour in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. The expedition includes journalists, photographers, film crews of television channels, travel bloggers and tour operators. Based on the results of the expedition, it is planned to identify the most optimal and interesting places and routes for the development of tours, which will be supported by accurate coordinates, high-quality photographs and video materials, as well as a detailed description.
