Tour description




Almaty is rich for different city attractions like historical and cultural objects, museums and parks. When starting your trip to Almaty, it is very important to learn the history of the city and visit significant places that are the hallmark of the city. In this regard, we specially developed for you the Almaty city overview tour, in which we put together the city sights that are most remarkable and important for Almaty and people. The tour involves the excursion in Almaty History Museum, ride through the business and old city center, and visiting the largest mountain skating rink in the world, located at an altitude of 1691 meters above the sea level.

You will go up close to the clouds to Shymbulak ski resort, located in the picturesque gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau at an altitude of 2260 m above the sea level. Further, the cable car goes even higher to Talgar pass, where a magnificent panorama of Trans-Ili Alatau mountains opens. The excursion continues to the Medeo boundary, where you will visit a dam that protects the city from mudflows, and go down the stairs, which consist of 842 steps, known to city residents as a Health Stairs.

Also, you will go up the cable car to Kok-Tobe Park, which is located right on the top of the mountain of the same name, at an altitude of 1100 m above sea level, where you will enjoy the stunning panorama of Almaty.
