About The Deghelen Range

Another low mountain range in Kazakhstan is the Deghelen. Located in the eastern part of the Kazakh Hillocky, it has a total area of 360 sq.km and some of its peaks barely exceed 1000 m in height. It is better known not for its heights, but for its belonging to Kurchatov town and Semipalatinsk nuclear test site. In Soviet times, there were nuclear explosion tests carried out here in the underground tunnels. Nowadays, the test site is closed and there is no access to the cavity formed as a result of the explosions.
