The Mirages of Ayyrtau
All kinds of mirages in the mountains are not uncommon. So, at the top of Mount Ayyrtau, which is in the east of Kazakhstan, some tourists experience strange hallucinations. For example: Arseniy Smirnov from Novosibirsk told that the land around the mountain suddenly began to sway like waves on the sea.
Other travelers said that in the folds of the rocks they imagined some figures with burning eyes. And to some people there was a dull rumble and blows coming from the bowels of the earth.
According to one version, the mountain chain of Ayyrtau are the fragments of a comet that once crashed into the Earth. Indeed, the stones that make up these mountains have an unusually rich black color and poorly fit into the surrounding landscape.
