  • Especially pleases the proximity to the city. Variety of trails, comfortable cable cars, the presence of warm changing rooms with lockers, groomed trail. There are some downsides but a little: not enough lockers, would better the cultivated and processed.

  • Your vacation and decided to hold in the mountains, far from the hustle and bustle. Chose the hotel "Shimbulak" back in the spring and got all the booking for a week, received a 50% discount on the room price, Nice. Breakfast is included in the price. The hotel has a bar-restaurant "Barn bar". Kitchen and service good, work hours very delight from 8.00 till 23.00. The only place where you can eat late in the evening, as all other restaurants and cafes open until 18.00.
