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 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

I guess its a must see, and it is good fun for people watching. Views over the city, the steppe and the mountains are great. The park up there is very kistchy. It was a major disappointment that there were no paths leaving the park for a quiet walk in the mountains.

I read about Kok-tobe when I was searching for things to do in Almaty.. There is a gondola that takes you up and down the hill and costs 2000 KZT. there are great views from top but for a solo visitor, it wasn't a lot to see and do.. There were quite a few activities for children and a restaurant... More

Old school amusement park atmosphere. They also have a small zoo with cute lambs among others. The "Fast Coaster" is a must - a downhill roller-coaster and you control the brakes!

If you haven't much to do, Koktobe is an okay place to check out. It isn't very expensive, and you do get a pretty good view of the city. What I liked most was seeing the unusual apple fountain, and going on the coaster ride. That was fun! Other than that, it wasn't really worth it.

We were there in the evening at 23.00 in April. It was cold but worth because the views were spectacular.
