    Kapchagai is a place where you can cool relax. When you drive from Russia that mountains and the problems of growing up in front of you. Like Kazakhstan with the year 1986 when all were brothers. Alas, but today it is easier to take a taxi than to communicate with Kazakh Inspector. It's a shame that all that is Russian attempt to obliterate, strange feeling when the Bough on which sit himself and pilish. Recent years, the level of the reservoir dropped, but the beauty of the morning waters amidst the mountains still stayed!

    There are a number of private beaching charging around 3-5 USD for entry with a car. Public beaches are more popular, but there is no restrooms there. Great for tanning and swimming during summertime.  more »

    The road from Almaty. The territory of akvaprka you can go by car. Admission is charged. Well-groomed territory, benches and bed a la sovdepija, but in a huge number that pleases. There are baby pools and slides. Children's plashhadki also available. Weak public catering with an inflated price. Pravda permit. Coating pools-painted concrete. The water is clean. Adequate staff. Compare it with the water parks of Tashkent and Emirates is pointless. In common does not iskushenyi people please. Family with children mlen'kimi in the heat of summer can be a good time.

Where to stay in Almaty Province

The main museums and city parks lie in the east of the city, making pitching up in this district sensible for those planning on staying for a while to explore the urban area. Side-street hostels can be found, providing dormitory-style lodgings.
