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.

One of the most famous hills nearby Almaty Some restaurants and services provide an opportunity to have a nice evening looking at Almaty from the top of the hill. Well if service wood better and prices not so high it would be an asst. But is there low prices in tourist areas somewhere? Cable car ride - is a fun.... More

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.

Kok Tobe, Green Hill, is the highest point of Almaty City. Going up in the cabin is already a nice trip but when you arrive on top, it gets even better. The view is amazing, from whatever side you look at it. The mountain side or the city side, beautiful. You find on the top nice restaurant with great view,... More

Kok Tobe is a serene place. Almaty and a vast stretch of the area looks excellent from top. The place has a ropeway and a small zoo. Some fun items for children could be seen there. Stuffed wolf is an attraction for posing for photograph. Kak Tobe is an ideal place for weekend fun and enjoyment. I have been there... More

It's nice up there. The city is all in front of you. I was there at sunset, and the light was absolutely gorgeous. There was some construction going on near the tower. Otherwise, a nice place to visit
