spring (April to June) and autumn (September to October) are the best seasons to visit Kazakhstan. In April, the desert blooms briefly and the monotonous ochre landscapes explode in reds, oranges and yellows. Autumn is harvest time, when market tables heave with freshly picked fruit.April 17-28 would be a good time to go
The Name of the currency is the Tenge

FOOD
Eating horse meat is common
Here is how to serve a sheep's head:

--Cut off an ear and give it to the youngest person so they listen to their elders and learn well.
--Cut a piece from near the eye and give it to a person who is important to you so they will be attentive.
--Cut a piece from the forehead and give it to someone with a challenge to help them be smart about it.
