  • The cable car takes you to the top where a small park (shooting ranges, panoramic wheel etc.) and a mini zoo (ostrich, roosters and hens, rabbits...). A new on-site restaurant and Brewery (grilled) - both with terraces. I advise to go there in good weather for the view on the city, but especially on the mountains.

  • It is a scenic spot which is very convenient because it is easily accessible by cable car, which is very close to the Center. The Hill is very commercial and a bit tacky (sad zoo).

  • When I visit Almaty, I go to Kok-Tobe. The view of the city and mountains is amazing. There are a lot of attractions. There is a new ferris wheel. I recommend to visit it.  more »
