"In the village of Karnak, near the city of Turkestan, there is a thousand-year-old mulberry tree Mazhratut. Locals say that it is 1200-1300 years old. What age of the tree is actually not so important, because this tree impresses with its size", - told the Republican public Association "QazaqGeography", having visited the amazing places of the Turkestan region during a special expedition.
