Observation Deck
Marvel at the giant 371.5 m (1,219 ft) tall "syringe" of Almaty Television Tower, the world’s tallest tubular steel structure, built on the slopes of Kok Tobe Mountain near Almaty. Completed in 1983, this fabulous piece of Soviet engineering captures and broadcasts signal across rugged mountains, dominating a spectacular landscape.

Part of Kok Tobe Park, you can take a cable car near the tower, and enjoy a meal or a coffee at its base. To visit Almaty Television Tower on your trip to Almaty, use our Almaty trip generator.

  • You will walk past it when you go up the Kok-Tobe Hill-nothing special really since it is just a TV tower.  more »
  • The Almaty Television Tower on Kok-Tobe hil is a big transmitting tower so people can catch all their favorite TV shows. The structure is like most TV towers and you can’t get near this one at all. Ha...  more »
  • Visible if you visit Kok Tobe. A tall huge tower, nothing extremely special. A special visit to this tower is not necessary in my opinion.  more »

  • Take the cable car on a clear sunny day so you get to see the beautiful mountains. You won't regret it. Have your picture taken with the famous golden apple when you reach the top. If more adventurous, try the Fast Rollercoaster ride/toboggan if you're comfortable with the thought of controlling the brakes yourself.
  • Excellent views of the city! Around the Tower, there is a wonderful Park Zoo, restaurants. The perfect place for romantic walks and relaxing with family. Don't forget to visit the Beatles shop

  • Unusual Park on a hill. The adventure begins with a trip to the ropeway over the houses of local residents-it is possible to make an impression on the sense of beauty and the standard of living of the local population. At the top you are waiting for rides, Zoo, several cafes with prices 2 x compared to those that below and gorgeous views of the city.

  • Wonderful design of the Tower, with the sky. A number of significant reconstructions for greater earthquake resistance of structures. Is impressive!
