    Quest was held on the top floor for Georgian restaurants, which is a beautiful green meadow with a smooth rise to the slope of the mountain. Very friendly, picturesque Gorge! We were offered coffee breaks in the same meadow and it was very convenient. Was served: tea, coffee, hot Samsa, cold beer and wine. Administration and waiters are very courteous, responsive, all matters solved very quickly! The banquet itself was in great Kazakh yurts, which, according to the administrator, is listed in the Guinness Book of world records as the biggest yurt in the world! Somewhere in the capacity 100 seats, in an authentic Kazakh style, equipped with sound equipment and 2 screens with projectors, located opposite one another. Everything works! Of course, in the Hall there is the splendor and glamour, this is a yurt. And you can not select evening attire for visiting this place. Sporty and casual style is appropriate. The menu various, snacks, hot, different kinds of shashlik. Very good, I recommend and for relaxing family and for celebrations.

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.
