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

It is an amazing place to have a view of Almaty city. But it of course depends on the weather. If it a little bit fogy, don`t go there. Choose a day, when the weather is good, otherwise it would be a waste of time to get there.

It is about 20 kms from main city. It has snow almost all around year and nice snow peaks. The cable car ride takes from 2200kms to 3800 meteres. The restaurant serves good food
