It used to be a green park with old tries, but was transformed now to a modern spot, where they cut down many tries. Restaurants are expensive. Nice souvenir shop if yo want to buy different small items.

The hill the mast stands on is the highest point of the city of Almaty at 1100 metres and the mast itself is 350 meters tall. The viewpoint from Kok-tobe is well worth a visit with panoramic views of the city in all directions. A cable car ride is a really good way to the top of Kok-tobe Hill and... More

This is a LOT of view for a modest 2000 tenge. You don't need to do touristic souvenir shopping here---although the selection and variety is really good. There are several touristic cafes and restaurants as well as amusement park wonders. But, really, just go for the stunning city panorama!

Visiting Almaty for a few days and people said this was something to definately do and it did not disappoint. I took the cablecar up to the top (2000tg round trip) which offered a nice view of some of the city. Once i reached the top the view was amazing. The view to the mountains was incredible and the view... More

Kok Tobe Hill is one of the must visit attraction if you visit Almaty. The location is 5 minutes walking distance from Hotel Kazakhstan. You may also take a cab to reach here. Enjoy the Almaty city view by taking the cable car ride to the top. The panorama was really amazing especially during winter. I would suggest for you... More

Modern cabins, beautiful view from the hill and a great place to buy suvenirs (I found it as one of the cheapest). I've visited it around sunset what made it even nicer.

Kok-Tobe means Green Hill and it's a green hill just in the middle of the town. It's a green and natural hill which is accessible by a teleferic which offers a nice and high view of the town, entertainment park,local cafes and restaurants, a small zoo and a gift store. It's a nice place to spend some time in Almaty.
