The cable car is being rebuilt at the moment sadly - but take the replacement bus up to the top. There's a mini fair, rides, stalls, bars, a climbing wall, a zoo and fabulous views of the TV Tower and city. Recommended.

I took my 11 year old son here last weekend, overall, he enjoyed himself. But each ride has a different person working and they often tried to charge me more than what they did the next person. When I realized that someone was charging me double, I started to barter with each one, unless the price was posted. I soon... More

Take the Old cable car ride to the top of Kok-Tube hill. It will soon be closed and replaced fully with the new one. The Old one was built back in soviet 1970-s.

Poor value for money. The view wasn't that great. The amusement park facilities at the top are fairly low grade.

Well, as I live in Almaty I rarely go to Kok- Tobe. This place is interesting for people from other cities and countries. Ticket is not cheap,but I think it's fine. They also have a nice restaurant up there with nice view and atmosphere. Food is really nice, maybe we were lucky that day))) My advice is: don't expect too... More

This is more a family oriented park. As well as rides, souvenir booths, there is a nice small zoo. The views of the city are great.

This place has a nice view to the city from the top of the famous hill which is almost in the center of the city. We had spent a very romantic evening at the cafe near the yurta resto. It was announced recently that the cable road will be closed for the reconstruction till the beginning of 2015, but the... More

The cable car ride was fun, but they pack you in like sardines. The best feature of the park is the view of Almaty. The amusements were the standard fare, just like you might see at a fair in the states. My grandson liked the animals, but not all of the creatures appeared well taken care of. Still, it was... More

Almaty is a fascinating city! I recommend travelers who are passing through Central Asia to visit the city of Almaty. It is a lovely place with quite a few things to see. Kok-Tobe by cable car costs 2000 Tenge but is worth the visit. Have a camera ready to take beautiful views of the city. July is very hot so... More
