  • The Hill is right next to Almaty and can be reached directly with the cable car with the coaches. From the top you can enjoy a beautiful panorama of the city especially in the evening, when it disappears the Pall of smog and you see the great lighting. On top there is also a small live animal exhibits, some souvenir shops (one of the few found in Kazakisthan) and a room for eating and drinking.

Where to stay in Almaty

Accommodations in the urban area of Almaty can be found almost exclusively in the grid-system city center. Located close to the main train station, you'll find hotels both upmarket and budget, with the former enjoying commanding views of the mountains on tree-lined boulevards, and the latter tucked away on the central district's side streets. Ski resorts to the south, as well as wild camping opportunities, provide good options for those wanting to get active and enjoy the surrounding landscape.
