"Kok Tobe" is translated as "Green Hill". There's a shuttlebus station, where you pay ~3$ for two way ticket. It's better to go there in the evening in summer, when Almaty is full of lights. Pros: - Deeply fresh air at the top of the hill. - Amazing view on mountains. - Almaty is like "on your palm" view. -... More

After a long week full of worries and tense work this place is nice to sit, walk and rest. You can find some restaurants there but I must warn you that it is going to be quite expensive, so be ready to spend at least $30-40 per person just for some snacks or pizza and a couple of drinks. There... More

Nice place to go on a sunny day with kids. Some of the attraction are free some you have to pay for, like climbing wall, shooting gallery, Segway, etc.

The cable car will take you through some of the best views around. It is a good place to go as part of your visit to Almaty.

Looks like it's a good place to visit in the summer., but to visit after the first snowfall and barely anything is open. Renovations, Closed attractions, nice restaurant but without everything on the menu & pricy. Also no cable car.and sad bare animal cages.

Unfortunately cable car is not working at the moment, probably rebuilding it, there is a bus a little further that takes you up&down for 500Tg. The view on the city side is amazing, however there is a lot of pollution over the city, at least when I was there, creating a heavy fog, but can be used well for pictures,... More

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
