  • Much to my regret, it is a great place for piece of nature turns into charges (fees) of money and neglected. Few people know that before the year 1963 there were ROUND base, PIONEER CAMPS and tent CAMPING! This is where TOURISTS walked along the Gorge in the mountain to watch the beauty of nature! The Gorge flows the river turbulent with very picturesque shores. When he reached the House of Forester, you get to wide flood River where the most daring and hardened can take a dip in the crystal clear water! And instead of barbecue and picnic, sit on warm rocks and drink from thermos Cup of tea with sandwiches while listening to the murmur of the river and admire the surrounding beauty of the Gorge! Recommend such trips round annually, except for the period (mid-April to mid-June), when MITES are especially active! PEOPLE, PRESERVE NATURE and DO NOT LEAVE garbage, PLEASE!

  • The ideal place for a picnic. There are tables and benches along the shore of the Lake. Ride on boats, 500 tenge per person. Better to come on a weekday, weekends many people and students bring on plein.

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.
