Description

The tour starts in one of the oldest Almaty parks, Panfilov Park. Here you will know more about the history of the city and see one of the highest wooden building in the world, Zenkov Cathedral. You will also visit the Memorial of Glory and Eternal Flame, dedicated to the memory of the fighters who have died for freedom and independence of the country.

Then the tour route will take you to the Medeo Gorge, where you will stop by the huge Medeo dam, which protects the city from destructive mudflows formed on the tops of the western Tien Shan. On the top of the dam, at the altitude of 1733 meters above sea level, you will enjoy an amazing panorama of the largest high mountain skating rink in the world - Medeo, surrounded by wonderful mountains of Trans-Ili Alatau.

Next you will visit the Kok-Tobe Hill, where the tallest TV tower in the world is located and where you will get by the picturesque winding mountain road. At the top of the hill you can admire the magnificent panorama of the city from the special observation deck, stroll along the winding paths of the Kok-Tobe park, visit the shop of national souvenirs, see the monument devoted to "The Beatles" (the only one in CIS countries) as well as many other interesting things.

The tour ends with the short ride from the top of the hill to the center of the city by the famous Almaty cableway.
