  • Close to the Metro. Cost of round trip cable car 2000 tenge (about 400 g). Above nice, several viewing platforms. All free space is occupied by children's pay-per-view sites. There is a monument to the Beatles and a Petting Zoo. Watch more nothing. Walking too. There is a restaurant and Café with mini kebab.

  • Kok Tobe, Almaty. Its definitely worth it taking the cable car located nearby the metro station Abay to Kok Tobe. On a beautiful day you can get different views, walk around the park there, ride with the Ferries wheel, children can play on different small attractions and finally you can have a treat in the restaurant there. A ride uphill and back for a single person was 2000.- Tenge today.
  • It's a very nice place to relax.
