The project is aimed at the development of community-based and ecological tourism in Karaganda region. Since august 2010 it has been implemented by "Avalon" Public Foundation in cooperation with Karaganda Ecological Museum and "Nomadic Travel Kazakhstan" travel company with the financial support from GEF/UNDP Small grants programme. At the moment the second phase of the project is in the process of implementation.
