Sarybulak-I burial ground is located 4 km south-west of Sumbe Village in Uighur District of Almaty Obalst, 200 km west of the cordon. In 2006 Almaty expedition of A.Margulan Institute of Archaeology undertook prospecting of an archaeological site. Burial complex is situated on the top hill, in the foothills of the northern slopes of Uzynkara Ridge, near Sarybulak Gorge. Panoramic view is opened to the Sarybulak Gorge and shrubby valley, adjacent to the gorge from the north.
Burial ground occupies top hills and the saddle between them of the left side of Sarybulak Gorge. It consists of 23 barrows and triple stone enclosures, clustered in three groups and extended to the line oriented from north-west to south-east. The first group of 8 large mounds is situated on the southern hill top. Two 'tzar' kurgans 30 m in diameter and 3 m high marked the centre of the site.
Another group of 8 barrows of smaller size is located in the saddle. 7 mounds and stone fences are situated on the northern hill top and formed the third cluster. A separate line of more than 10 'tzar' barrows occupies the flat territory of the farm, 100 m north of the third group.
Earth and stone embankments are fallen, flattened, with stone ring encircling the basis, covered with turf. Diameters vary from 3 to 30 m, 0,1 to 3 m high. Kurgans are spread at distance of 7- 60 m. Some barrows in the southern part of the burial complex were destroyed while arranging for Moslem cemetery.
Rectangular stone fence 10 x 24 m in seize is situated on the elevation in the northern part of necropolis. It is erected of large stones and slabs installed vertically. The structure is divided into 3 rectangular sections each of 3 to 4 meters. The outer north and south sides have traces of stone filling. Structure of the burial ground, constructional features and shape of embankments attribute the site to the Late Sakae and Wu-sun periods of the Early Iron Age (IV c. B.C.-II c. A.D.).
