Altyn Emel: "Singing dune"
Singing dune is wonderful place where a lot of sand. The "Singing Dunes" are located 300 kilometers from Almaty national park. When the wind is blowing from the West dispersing the sands, one has a feeling that the pipe organ is playing in the heart of the desert. Up to now this phenomenon is still a riddle of the nature, but the scientists suppose that in hot dry weather the sand gets electrified due to friction and creates a certain sonic vibration. None of those who once heard the barchans singing will ever forget this phenomenon
