“Nice view to Almaty from the mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

From this mountain you can see all city Almaty. City is surrounded by mountains and when weather is clear, it is nice view to mountains with snow on peaks.

“summer place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Nice place to see the city from the top but it is better to go there in spring-summer period rather than in winter

“Lovely view of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

It's a lovely place for children (lots of rides and attractions). You also get wonderful views of the city of Almaty. Quite nice that the lift leaves from Dostyk (aka Lenin) and Abai Avenues because it is a very central location. In contrast, in most other cities one must travel a while outside of the city to get a such a nice view.

“The view is awesome and the air sooo clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

it is not allowed to go there by car, and it's up the hill, thus the air is clean and fresh. Nice to go there at 4 pm, walk around, and then have a dinner with the best view ever. Summer would be the best for that

“KokTobe Cable Car and Look out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

There are good views over the city and also to the Tien Shan mountains. It is best early morning because of haze over the mountains in the afternoon. The lift tickets are quite expensive for Almaty but nevertheless good value.

There is a range of tourist attractions and cafe/restaurants plus animals for smaller children.

A pleasant place to spend a few hours.

NB. Correct spelling is Kok Tobe and not Kok Tube.
