A long time ago on the Kazakh steppe, the great Bayterek tree grew. This special tree was called the World Tree and it united the upper, middle and lower worlds. Its branches reached into the heavens of the upper world, where two birds called out the number of days remaining until the end of the world
Its trunk belonged to the middle, or human world, ruled by Maadai-Kara, and its roots went deep into the underworld where the god, Erlik ruled.
Maadai-Kara had a glorious reign but as he grew old, he lost his power.
One day, he fell asleep and his sleep lasted for sixty days.
When he finally woke up, his enemies were close.
He knew that when they approached even closer there would be a terrible war.
Madaai-Kara had a baby son, Kögüdei Mergen.
To keep him safe, he decided to take Kögüdei Mergen to the Black Mountain and leave him there, where a poor woman of Altai found him.

Maadai-Kara returned to fight the battle, but he lost and the new ruler, Kara-Kula, made all of Maadai-Kara's people slaves.
On the Black Mountain, the poor woman of Altai took care of Kögüdei Mergen until he was ready to live his life on his own.

When he was old enough, Kögüdei Mergen left the Black Mountain on his horse and rode across the land.
He crossed a poisonous sea, made it through the moving mountains, and faced many monsters on his way until he reached the home of Kara-Kula and defeated him in battle.
Kögüdei Mergen set all his people free from being slaves.
He became the new ruler and with the help of seven kaans, he married the beautiful Altyn Küskü.
But still, his quest was not over.
He descended into the underworld, to the land where the dead dwell.
There, he fought Erlik, the lord of the underworld and won.
