Katon-Karagaisky rayon was formed on August 1, 1928, in a year in 1929 on September, 20 the Chingistaisky rayon belonged to the Katon-Karagaisky rayon. In 1932 the Katon-Karagaisky rayon was a part of the East Kazakhstan region. In 1935 Bolshenarymski and Bukhtarminski rayons were separated from the structure of the Katon-Karagaisky and Ziryanovski rayons. In 1954 the area of the rayon had considerably extended due to joining of "Verkhkatunski" state farm of Ust-Koksinski rayon of the Gorno-Altai autonomous region of the Altay Krai.

On January 1, 1963 the Katon-Karagaisky rayon was mergered with  Bolshenarymski rayon, the centre of the rayon became Bolshenarymsk settlement. On December 4, 1970 again the rayon was named Katon-Karagaisky with the centre in Katon-Karagai settlement.
On March 23, 1997 - the Bolshenarymski rayon was liquidated, the administrative centre of Katon-Karagaisky rayon became Bolshenarymsk settlement.

The rayon is situated in the northeast part of the territory of the region. In the north and the north-east the rayon borders on the Republic Altai of the Russian Federation, in the southeast on the Chinese National Republic, in the south on the Kurchumski rayon, in the north - on Ziryanovski rayon, in the west – the rayon is washed by Bukhtarminski water basin.

Administrative centre is Bolshenarymsk settlement, it locates in 263 km from the regional centre of Ust-Kamenogorsk city. Transport connection of the regional centre with the rayon is carried out on the highway Ust-Kamenogorsk - Ziryanovsk - Bolshenarymsk.

According to the administrative-territorial division of the East Kazakhstan region there are 54 settlements, 13 rural districts with the population 44226 persons are registered in the rayon.

On agro-climatic conditions the Katon-Karagaisky rayon is located in the mountain and foothill and Alpine zones with sharp-continental climate, characterized by the severe long winter, short but hot spring and autumn. The territory of the rayon is precisely divided into four climatic zones:
1. High-mountainous (tundra-meadow)
2. Mountain-wood, surplus-damp
3. Mountain, forest-steppe damp
4. Mountain-steppe

Climate of high-mountainous and mountain-wood zones is very damp, moderately cold, places very cold. In the northern part of the zone 550-560 mm of sediments drop out for a year. The July maximum of sediments is well-marked.
Average monthly speed of the wind for a year makes up 1,7 km/s. Number of days with the strong wind makes up 7, and with dusty storm - 10 days for a year.

Growth of ground and climate is of vertical zonality. Green mosses, lichens, decumbent bushes prevail in the high-mountainous tundra zone.
High-mountainous meadow zone differs in dominance of high-mountainous kinds of cereals, sedge, dicotyledonous motley grass with appreciable existence of green mosses and lichens. In the Alpine belt vegetation is stocky, fragmentary, the quantity of uncovered plants of naked spots increases with height, in the subalpine belt the growth is more close with low and medium grass.

High-mountainous Alpine meadows are situated in some less high mountainous than tundras, but in well humidified by atmospheric precipitation northwest, partly the central and Southern Altai low mountainous where they are presented by partly motley grass-sedgy, motley grass-cereal views of grasses.
Mountain-taiga and meadow-taiga zones are characterized by dominance in growth of dark conifers (fir cedar) or bright conifers (larch) taiga and subordinated role of the open forest meadows.
Soil cover of the territory of the rayon is various and depends basically on the relief. Mountains’ soils are presented by mountain-tundra wit outputs of radical breeds till 30 %, mountain meadow Alpine and subalpine afforest till 50 %, mountain taiga with outputs of radical breeds till 30 %, mountain wood, mountain wood chernozem-like, mountain forest-meadow, mountain-steppe with mountain black earth, mountain leached black earth and ordinary mountain black earth of southern undeveloped with outputs of radical breeds till 30 %. These soils are formed in conditions of high-mountainous relief at heights over 2500-2800 m.

Soils of mountains are used as summer distant-pasture.

Soils of foothill plains and intermountain valleys are basically used under arable land and mowing, high quality.

Soils of foothill valleys and intermountain valleys are of the first nature-climatic zone, soils of mountains are of the second nature-climatic zone.

The hydrographic network of the rayon is presented by the numerous rivers, small rivers, streams. The largest water-current is the Bukhtarma river, flowing at the northern border of the territory of the rayon. The second large water-current is the Narym river, crossing the rayon from the east to the West. Numerous streams have their source from mountains with the speed of current of 1-2 m/s. Character of the rivers is mountain. Water is of high quality, suitable for all kinds of household and agricultural water supply.

In mountains subsoil waters lie on depth of 30-60 m. In intermountain hollows, valleys and water-meadow of rivers subsoil waters are found out on depth of 0-6 m.
Zoning of lands of agricultural purpose is manufactured in borders of cadastral quarters of former agricultural productions on the basis of comparative assessment of the territory of the rayon on complex of the natural factors influencing manufacture of agricultural production, namely:
·    Position of the territory concerning the rayon and regional centres, production markets, supply bases, centres of technical services;
·    Structures of agricultural land;
·    Qualitative state of land, pastures;
·    Relief of the territory.
Factors having the positive influence on the level of usefulness of the zone and causing the coefficients growth to the base rates of the land tax are:
·    Well-developed transport networks;
·    Closeness of commodity production markets, supply bases, centres of technical services.
Following factors of coefficients decreasing:
·    Significant remoteness of lands from commodity markets, supply bases;
·    Low supply by territory transport networks, bad state of roads.

Pastures basically are stony bushed, hillside.

The area of territory of the rayon makes up 4,7 % from the total area of the region. In structure of farmland pastures make up 81 %, arable-11 %.

The territory of the rayon makes 13167 sq.km (1319075 ha). The quantity of the population of the rayon for 01.01.05 made up 41000 persons, basically - Kazakh (87 %), Russian, Tatar, German and representatives of others nationalities.
